Directions to Springfield Trailhead

The trailhead parking lot is located in northwest Springfield, on West Kearney Street and Eldon Rd., just west of US-160 (West Bypass).

The trailhead is located on the city bus route and is very close to the Courtyard by Marriott. Springfield has full services and many hotels. Downtown Springfield is about 5 miles away and worth checking out. A unique atmosphere is flourishing on South Avenue's old-fashioned main street. There is a variety of restaurants, theaters, an ice skating rink, arcade and much more.

Directions to Willard Trailhead from Springfield

From Sprngfield, go north on US-160 (West Bypass) to Willard. Exit east (right) to the downtown business district on Jackson St. Trail parking is available at the paved trailhead next to Willard High School on Jackson Street..

Directions to Wishart Trailhead from Springfield

Go north on Highway 13 to Highway 215. Go west on Highway 215 to Morrisville. Take 111th Road north to 514 Road. Go west on 514 a mile or two and you'll see the tiny parking area. FYI - This is a very primitive trailhead. No services in Wishart except a port-a-potty at the trailhead.

Just before the downtown square, the street passes under the mural-painted former railroad bridge (now the northernmost trail bridge).
