Trail Blazer Challenge

Explore YOUR trails by participating in the Trailblazer Trail Challenge! This challenge is designed to get you outside, solo or with your friends and family, to explore some of our region’s wonderful trails.

Along the way we hope you have a chance to see new places and make positive memories.  Anyone is allowed to participate in the search. Participants who find all 12 signs during the event can win fun OG swag. Ozark Greenways staff temporarily installs special signs along twelve local trails. While the signs are up thru September 30, we invite everyone to explore the trails to find the signs. And of course, leave the sign to be found by the next trail challenge participant. We provided Celebrate Springfield participants some parking tips or trail clues to help you find the sign!
