Creating outstanding trail experiences in the foothills of the Ozarks!
Established in January 2021, the Poplar Bluff Trails Coalition (PBTC) is an all-volunteer, grassroots nonprofit organization whose mission is to plan, promote, build and maintain trails in the greater Poplar Bluff, Missouri region. We serve Butler, Carter and Wayne Counties in the State of Missouri. To achieve our mission, we partner with a variety of public, private and non-profit landowners to plan, construct and improve trail networks for mountain biking, hiking, trail running and equestrian use.
