Blue River Parkway Trails
(known as BuRP)
BuRP, aka Minor Park is a great park for running on trails, especially in
the Summer. This is due to the efforts of the Jackson County Parks and Recreation Dept working with area MTB cyclists
to keep the weeds trimmed-back from the trails. This lessens the chance of picking up a tick, or getting a dose of poison
ivy. Thanks, JCP&R and Earthrider folks!
Also thanks to Rob Stitt and his great web site with all of its
trail maps and information. Rob organizes trail maintenance days on
these trails, by the way.
There are many miles of runnable trails in the park. The main access
points are listed below, but there are a few others. The terrain varies, and there are some nice fording areas to cross
the Blue River, but use common sense during high water days. Also, take care not to damage the trails by running on
them in wet and muddy conditions. Happy trails, and remember that everybody MUST YIELD TO HORSES!
