“An urban trail along Hwy 65, then along the James River connecting to the rest of the Galloway Creek Greenway.”
— Patrick Boyle
Birding · River/Creek
On rare occasions, the river may flood and make portions of the trail impassable.
This is the east side of the Galloway Creek Greenway
that is part of the extensive trail system in and around Springfield, Missouri. For more information, visit the sponsoring organization's website
for this trail and others in the area.
This piece of the trail is a bit noisy as it starts alongside a six-lane divided highway, then follows part of the James River. People fish and kayak and canoe on this usually calm river. The trail connects on the west side of Highway 65 to the Springfield Conservation Center trail system and more of the Ozark Greenways system. Bicyclists also use this trail.
