The trails are open from sunrise to sunset. 

Are the trails well marked?

Are the trails safe?

Yes. The Springfield-Greene County Park Rangers and Springfield Police do a great job patrolling the community. And remember: Never leave valuables in your car unattended! If you ever feel unsafe, call 911 and they will dispatch your callto the appropriate entity to address the concern.

Are the trails ADA accessible?

Most of the trail are ADA accessible. However, please note that the Sac River Mountain Bike Trails and the one-mile woodchipped Volunteer Nature Trail along Wilson's Creek Greenway are not ADA accessible, and some trail sections may have steep inclines due to the terrain.

What is an Ozark Greenways membership, and what do I get?

An OG membership is one way to support the organization on an annual basis. Members receive the Ozark Greenways printed newsletter, early-bird pricing to the Annual Fall Dinner & Party, and an invitation to the meeting... but the main reason to be an OG member is to be part of the vitally important base of support for trail development in the Springfield area. Become a member today!

We rely on the enthusiasm and financial support of the community.
