The TransAmerica Trail

 

 TransAmerica Trail Sign

The TransAmerica Trail is a bicycle route that begins in Astoria OR and ends on the Chesapeake Bay at Yorktown VA. Fair Grove is located at about the mid-point of the Trail and plays host to many riders the year round as they travel through the beautiful Ozarks. We usually observe riders traveling from east to west, but regardless of the direction you ride you're welcome here.

Fair Grove is located on the ninth section of the Trail which extends from Girard KS to Murphysboro IL.
