Trail Information

The Greenbriar Connector is a 0.4-mile concrete trail that connects residents living near Green Meadows Rd. to the MU Recreation Trail/Hinkson Creek Trail near Epple Field and MU’s Green Tennis Center.  The Greenbriar Connector also provides opportunities for non-motorized transportation options to students attending Rock Bridge High School.
Design engineers navigated the steep slopes with a switchback route utilizing retaining walls and estate fencing through this lovely wooded area. Travel is downhill from the Green Meadows residential area to the MU Recreation Trail. A bench for resting and a bulbout lookout area is provided those traveling uphill as they approach the bridge that crosses Hinkson Creek to the Greenbriar Drive residential neighborhood.
The total project cost was $971,037, which included acquisition, engineering services, and construction. The project was administered by GetAbout Columbia, with funding provided by the Federal Highway’s Non-Motorized Transportation Pilot Program. After its completion, it was incorporated into the City’s trail system under the management of the Parks and Recreation Department.
