Springfiled Rail-Trail honored

According to a Springfield News-Leader article:

The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy has named the Frisco Highline Trail May's rail-trail of the month. Missouri's southwest rail-trail is featured on the group's Web site, complete with pictures and a detailed description of its rapidly expanding trail length and popular rural landscape.

Missouri's fastest-growing rail-trail is currently 16 miles from Springfield to Walnut Grove, with another completed mile at the northern trailhead in Bolivar. In late September the trail will open 18 additional miles to the public. Once completed, the entire trail will extend 35 continuous miles for recreational use by walkers, bicyclists, equestrians and runners.
