The Missouri Pacific Recreational Trail (also known as the “Mo-Pac Trail”) is a paved multi-use pathway built on the former Missouri Pacific Railway corridor in Iola. The trail is approximately 1/2 mile in length, and connects the Prairie Spirit Trail with The Iola Middle School and Iola High School, as well as the downtown square (via the Washington Street sharrows).

The trail is paved with concrete, and is 10 feet in width for the majority of its length, with a three-block section at a 5-foot width alongside on-street sharrows for bicycle traffic.

The trail was funded through a federal Transportation Enhancements grant, administered by the Kansas Department of Transportation, along with local matching funds.
