Ruby Jack is a Rails to Trails project. It runs from Carthage to the Kansas state line just past Carl Junction, MO. The trail from Carthage is very good packed rock through Oronogo. Just past Oronogo it is not finished and is made up of the loose rock from the railbed. It's not overgrown badly but very difficult on a bike.Show more
