Frisco - Greenway - Trail, Joplin, Missouri


The Frisco Greenway Trail is a multi-use "rails to trails" project. However, toward the South end of the gravel "trail" past the bridge/creek (about 1 mile from trailhead) there is a network of fast, semi-technical singletrack I would estimate at probably 3 or 4 total miles (perhaps a local could clarify?). Lots of roots, small rocks with a few challenging climbs and fast descents. Trail is not marked at all can be a little confusing to navigate, though you are never very far from the main gravel "trail". Singletrack ends at another parking lot on North st. and N. Railroad Ave.

I'm only writing this review because I was just out there a few days ago, and I'm really disappointed...the city is clearing out a large portion of this ride toward the end, and they've been driving trucks and tracked machinery back there. I'm not sure what the plans are, but it looks like they're getting ready to pave at least a portion of this ride.

Otherwise, you'll find a few fun sections on this trail, but don't expect much if it's rained in the last two or three days as it stays fairly squishy after a rain.

I hope the city isn't planning to ruin this little gem that is right down the street from me.

Customer Service

Start at Zora and St. Louis, there is a place to park and go southwest on the gravel portion of the Frisco trail. The first place you see to drop in on the left might be better left avoided as it meets up with the rest of the trail there is a fallen tree that is about 3 feet tall, and you pretty much have to get off the bike to get past it. Try dropping in on the left side of the bridge.
