this trail is actually called the frisco highline trail- goes from Springfield to BOlivar- about 30 miles. IT is paved from Springfield through Willard- about 8 miles. crosses over a number of bridges once you get past walnut grove (around 17-19 mile mark is where they start. very flat the whole way. there is a mcdonalds at the 5 mile mark (across the adjacent highway) in willard (6 mile mark) and in walnut grove (a little before the 15 mile mark) you can follow a road to get water or something to eat if you need it. past walnut grove it is around 10 miles to the next very small town where there is supposed to be a store nearby you can get water. I didn't see it when I went through, and haven't made it all the way to bolivr yet.pretty tra
