The Frisco Greenway Trail is a multi-use “rails to trails” project that is maintained by the Joplin Trails Coalition. The 3.5 mile trail consists of firmly packed gravel on top of an old railroad bed and is suitable for walking, running, or biking or any non-motorized vehicle, including mobility scooters. The trail runs from North Street in Joplin, MO on the south end and travels to Turkey Creek. After crossing the Turkey Creek bridge, there is a paved spur trail to the right (east) which continues St. Louis, then south along the street , before continuing east to Florida Ave. This paved section is maintained by the City of Joplin Parks and Recreation. Following the the Frisco Trail past the bridge through the forest, then after 1 mile you’ll arrive at St. Louis parking access. The trail continues through an open field to Zora St. then continues north, adjacent to many residential areas in north Joplin and Webb City. After the 3.5 miles total you’ll arrive in Highway 171 in Webb City, MO. There is a very short 1/4 section north of Hwy 171. Adjacent to the trailhead next to the fire department you’ll find a bike shop, a coffee shop and many restaurant options within a short distance.
