About the Medical Mile

Planned by a group of committed citizens, community leaders and local businesses, the medical mile trail links Mercy to the north and CoxHealth to the south along National Avenue in Springfield.

The vision was to create a safe, inviting trail that would encourage walking, running and cycling. The trail winds past scenic McDaniel Park and the South Creek Greenway trailhead, linking the medical mile to Springfield's extensive trail system.

This mobile-optimized website is intended as an online companion for those using the trail, providing resources to support a healthy lifestyle and increasing enjoyment of the medical mile walking trail.
