Options that aren't, unfortunately within an hour of Joplin. The closest, epic trails to Joplin are in Eureka Springs, Arkansas at Leatherwood Park (on the Western edge of town). If you head there and stop in at the Booze Brothers liquor store, the owners are mountain bikers and will likely offer to guide you. There's also some new trail in that area but it's not marked and open to the public yet. So riding there would have to be with the trailbuilders (again, Booze Brothers). Eureka Springs is about 1.5 hours from Joplin or about 2.5 hours from Nevadakwade62 said:We live in Dallas but will be spending Christmas in lovely Nevada, MO . Are there any singletrack trails in the Joplin area or anywhere within an hour or so drive from Nevada? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Merry Christmas to all!!!
