Dirt 66 and Fellows Lake
TrailSpring, along with City Utilities, Ozark Greenways, the City of Springfield and a few others, are developing 66 miles of new trails to add to our outdoors. “Save the date for Saturday, July 24,” says Mary Kromrey, executive director of Ozark Greenways. “The Fellows Lake partners will be showcasing the new fabulous amenities at Fellows Lake.” These amenities will include water and bottle fill stations, bike fix-it stops, shared-use connectivity stations and more. Other parks that will be benefiting from the work of Dirt 66 include Ritter Springs, Fulbright Park, Lost Hill Park and more.
The Galloway Creek Greenway was the first trail to be designated a National Recreation Trail way back in 2003, the first in Missouri on a list that has grown to 24 trails in 2021. Taking walkers and riders through Sequiota Park, the Springfield Conservation Nature, and connecting to the James River Greenway (among many other scenic stops), this trail is a perfect way to take in the beauty of our natural surroundings. The City of Springfield begins renovations to the Galloway Trail from Barton Street to Republic Road this summer.
