This trail is paved except for about the last 100 yards before reaching Lake Springfield. It would be a nice trail for the elderly or disabled. The first half of the trail runs along the James River and is inside the Missouri Veterans Cemetery. The last half of the trail runs along the edge of mostly open fields. A train track with a bridge divides the two halves. When we were there part of the trail toward the lake end was under ankle deep water but that just added to the fun.
