Old Frisco Trail renewed for future generations

June 8, 2012

The Frisco Railroad line was once a vital part of the infrastructure of LeFlore County. Now, the rails are gone, but the trail remains. Stretching from Poteau to Wister, the remnants of the old rail line have become a trail frequented by walkers, runners, and bike riders. Unfortunately, however, the trail also became neglected and was soon a popular place to dump garbage. Poteau marathon runner Josh Snyder,
however, was not content to let the trail fall into disrepair and disuse.
