Dirt 66 is a Master Design Plan dedicated to creating a world-class trail system in Springfield MO, for residents and tourists alike. Progressive Trail Design teamed up with nonprofit organization TrailSpring to conceptually design natural surface trail in 6 green zones located in North Springfield Missouri. These natural surface trails are designed for hiking, running, and biking, and while they will be multi-use, trails will be optimized for mountain biking. For this Design project, one of our tasks was to not only design natural surface trail, but to incorporate greenway and on-road connections to each zone as well. This attention to connectivity will provide safe passage between zones and redefine the possibility of alternative transportation. Because of the location of the trail system, and because Springfield is the birthplace of Route 66, we chose to name the system Dirt 66.
