SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A southwest Missouri trail is now designated as at National Recreation Trail.

The U.S. Department of Interior this week named Wilson’s Greek Greenway as a national trail. It was the only trail in Missouri among 19 that received the designation this year.

The 5-mile recreation trail runs through southwest Springfield and unincorporated Greene County. It also connects to the 6-mile South Creek Greenway, which runs east-west through the middle of Springfield.

Wilson’s Creek Greenway is the fourth trail in the Ozark Greenways system to earn the National Recreation Trail recognition.

Others include Galloway Creek Greenway; the Frisco Highline Trail; and South Creek Greenway.
