Walnut Bottoms is the site of a 3.5 mile trail. This trail is well traveleld and marked with orange flags. Future expansion is planned bringing a 4-6 mile trail in Carthage city limits. The Walnut Bottoms run was held March 8th, 2014. Walnut Bottoms' open house was held March 30th, 2014.
The 27 acre tract is home to an offroad trail for hiking, trail running, and mountain biking. City of Carthage officials and area residents have proposed to purchase a professional trail design, and implement that design with city and volunteer labor. Pending strong community fundraising, major improvements could be complete as early as summer of 2014. The area is located on the north bank of Spring River and east of Garrison Rd. The Joplin Trails Coalition is accepting donations for the project. Please, help us spread the word about this community project, and thank your City of Carthage officials for their support!
