  2. What a cool photo. I really enjoy the original trail and there are always people using it when I drive by. Thank you to everyone who worked on the existing trail, and those who worked on the grant for the extension. This is so great for Springfield.

  3. Shut up 7:55 - that doesn't mean we can't take care of things for other people's enjoyment and health benefits. When's the last time you gave dropped some change in a homeless persons bucket? The state has been renting motel rooms for homeless people - buying food, clothes, and ebt cards that can be used to buy literally anything. You're probably one of them.

  4. Try living right off the trail. A lot of people can't read signs, especially no parking by the bridge. I miss the privacy,
