About Us

The Joplin Trails Coalition (JTC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating and maintaining multi-use trails in Joplin, Webb City, Carthage, Oronogo and Carl Junction Missouri.  We currently manage two trails: the Frisco Greenway Trail that runs through Joplin and Webb City, and the Ruby Jack Trail that goes west from Carthage, MO through Oronogo, Carl Junction, and on to the Kansas state Line. Both of these trails are Rails To Trails projects, meaning they are former railroads that have been converted to multi-use trails. The trails are created and maintained via the hard work of many volunteers and generous donations from individuals and businesses throughout the community. We invite you to come and explore the trails in person and to get more involved by becoming a member of the Joplin Trails Coalition, volunteering on trail work days, and by participating in our annual Route 66 Mother Road Bicycle Tour and the Maple Leaf Bicycle Tour

The Joplin Trails Coalition was established in 1991, as a nonprofit, grassroots organization. We are an all volunteer organization, and rely on donations and volunteers to build and manage the trails.
