The Sac River Trail is 3 miles North of the I44 at Springfield on Highway 13. It’s primarily a biking trail, but it’s our ‘go to’ place for a quick hike. You just need to keep an ear out for fast approaching bikes and step out of the way.
The trails are very easy to follow but convoluted – it’s easy to get misplaced. The terrain is typical Ozarks karst rocky steps with glades and lots of seeps. The trail can get very muddy and wet after rain, and the trail running along side the Sac river floods.

Getting to the Sac River Trail
To get there, just take Highway 13 (Kansas Expressway) north out of Springfield. About three miles past I-44 (and the diverging diamond interchange), you’ll see a cell phone tower at the top of the hill. Just before the tower, turn left onto a paved drive that leads to both the parking lot and the northwest water treatment plant.
