Trail Update - Fall 2017
Trail of Honor Dedication Was Wonderful
October 12th was a beautiful day to unveil a fantastic new trail section on James River Greenway! The perfect weather made the day extra pleasant to wander along the ultra blue river. We’re so grateful to our donors, veterans, dignitaries, and Missouri Veterans Commission leadership for supporting this unprecedented trail segment that the public will be able to enjoy for generations to come. Check out our online map to see how it links to Galloway Creek Greenway.

Gap on Fulbright Spring Greenway Will Begin to Connect
The 1/2-mile trail gap on Fulbright Spring Greenway between David C. Murray Trailhead and the edge of the old Fulbright Landfill is coming closer to being connected. New trail construction has begun west of Lost Hill, to be completed before the end of the year. The remaining 1.4-mile portion of the gap will be connected by September 2018. This trail is gorgeous! A portion of this connection has been made possible by a $150,000 grant from the Department of Natural Resources’ Recreational Trails Program, as well as private donations from our Trails for Generations campaign.
