The River Springs Chapter is located in Southeastern Missouri.  Our chapter works on government trails managed by both federal and state agencies.  Some of the trails we volunteer on are the Irish Wilderness in Oregon and Ripley County, Sam A. Baker State Park in Wayne County, Lake Wappapello State Park north of Poplar Bluff in Butler County and the designated horse trails in the Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Shannon County.  We mainly work on the Ozark Trail which crosses southeastern Missouri for over 200 miles.

Our work days are every third Saturday if the weather cooperates and also if we do not have any BCHMO events to go to.  Notifications are by email.  We also have work/rides during the week when we reschedule a work day or when we must in order to get all the trails in our area cleaned at least once a year.  We work and enjoy the scenery as we go.

Calendar of Events

Click on an event for more information. Clicking on “map” in the event  will take you to a Google Map.

If there are no events showing it is because the chapter doesn’t have any in the current date range. Click on “Look for More” and then you can scroll through the entire year. You can also click on the Month tab and step through the months.

Note: A lot of addresses are Latitude-Longitude coordinates, as they have no street address. This eliminates confusion as to where the event is located.


                  The pictures are from our first work day, February 27th.  We are working on the Victory Trail, Section 1 on the                            Ozark Trail map, in Butler County.
