The Galloway Creek Greenway is among the more popular trails for running in Springfield. This paved multi-use trail in Southeast Springfield runs for 5 miles from Lone Hills Bike Park south to the Lake Springfield area, following Galloway Creek. It’s a nice combination of wooded & open terrain, passing through several parks.
The north end is at Pershing Middle School @ E Seminole St. The first mile is nicely open, through Rivermonte Memorial Gardens. Continue south for another 1 mile into Sequiota Park, which is a pleasant recreation area with a fishing lake (and a 1/2 mile perimeter loop trail). Continue south from there. The last ~1 mile around the Highway 60/65 interchange isn’t that great.
Add-On: A spur of the Galloway Creek Greenway near its south end connects to the Springfield Conservation Nature Center, which has a pleasant, mainly wooded ~2 mile nature trail overlooking Springfield Lake.
- Up to 5.3 miles (8.5 km) one-way
