Ruby Jack Trail

The Ruby Jack Trail is a 16-mile long unpaved pathway that follows the route of an abandoned railway. The trail spans between Smithfield and Carthage to the north of Joplin. The trail has a surface of compacted crushed limestone or a natural unimproved surface. The rout extends to the state line of Missouri and Kansas.

The Ruby Jack Trail goes through rural Missouri, past farmland, wooded areas and wetland natural areas. The 9 miles of the trail around Carthage have an improved crushed limestone surface suitable for hybrid bikes and walking. The remainder of the trail has not been improved and is suitable for mountain bikes and hiking.

The Ruby Jack Trail goes through the communities of Smithfield, Carl Junction, Oronogo, and Carthage. Much of the route is very rural and trail users should come prepared with adequate water and supplies.
