Trail Improvements Meeting – Cuivre River State Park

See Photo Location

The staff at Cuivre River State Park, along with the Missouri State Parks trails coordinator, are thrilled to announce that the park has been awarded an AmeriCorps NCCC crew for a 12-week period this summer. The crew’s primary task will be building 2.5 miles of new trail that will serve as a reroute around areas of the Cuivre River Trail South Loop and Connector 2 that are heavily eroded and degraded. These reroutes are designed to be more sustainable, reducing issues with washouts and creating a safer and more enjoyable ride or hike for trail users. Old sections will be decommissioned and allowed to return to a natural state. In total, this project will increase the length of equestrian trail by almost half a mile. After completion of the new trail, the NCCC crew will help clear and maintain the remainder of the park’s 42-mile trail system.

Missouri State Parks staff would like to invite trail users to a public meeting at the Lake Shelter on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, at 6 p.m. to learn more about this project, and meet the AmeriCorps NCCC crew that will be working with the park throughout the summer. A formal meeting will take place at 6 p.m., with an open-house style meeting afterward.

AmeriCorps NCCC is a full-time service program that covers lodging and travel expenses, allowing young adults to serve on a team and make an impact in communities across the country while gaining valuable leadership skills.
