The Frisco Highline Trail is a scenic path through southwest Missouri’s past and present. Missouri's own Harry Truman road the Frisco Highline. A lot has happened here since back in 1948, when Truman rode the 35 miles from Springfield to Bolivar and back in his private railroad car, warming up for his famous “Whistle Stop Campaign" that would get him re-elected as President that year. The tracks are gone now, the old stations have been torn down, and the wail of the steam whistle has been replaced by bird songs.

And yet, some things haven’t changed much at all! Wheels still spin on this route—only today they’re bicycle wheels, as trail users of all political stripes enjoy the second-longest rail-trail in Missouri (after the famous Katy Trail). The route still winds through woods and pastures, crossing 16 railroad bridges on its way across Greene and Polk counties
