New mountain bike trail coming to the Ozarks will surround Fellows Lake | KOLR

Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

Another mountain bike trail is coming to the Ozarks.

This one is north of Springfield surrounding Fellows Lake. It’s called Dirt 66 and it’s been in the works for about eight years with the help of the city and Ozark Greenways. . . .

You’ll find the path near Fellows Lake Trail off the top of the hill. It won’t interfere with other existing trails.

The same company that developed Two Rivers Bike Trail in Highlandville is also planning and funding this trail.

Jessica Pearson with Trailspring says what makes this different from other trails, like Sac River, is both the terrain and the beautiful lake setting.

MoBikeFed comment: This is another great example of a mountain bike project going in around Missouri. Demand for mountain bike/hiking trails has grown dramatically over past years, and putting in a simple singletrack mountain bike trail is one of the most cost-effective steps a parks department, city, or county can take to make trails more accessible in their area.
