Katy Trail State Park

Clinton to Machens September 2017

October, 2017 by bobsteele

Three of us (all 70 years old) made the trip from west to east riding recumbent trikes. We averaged about 40 miles a day staying at B&Bs and found the trail well maintained, with only minor areas needing repairs. All days were rain free, so the ride was dusty. Very good information stations about the history of most towns.

Rode entire trail in 3 days!

September, 2017 by fitnpeaceful

My friends and I started the Lewis and Clark Trail via the KATY Trail, beginning in St. Charles, MO in 2007. We rode the trail in September and it was beautiful. There are several quaint Bed and Breakfasts along the trail through Missouri and we stayed at a few of them and were never disappointed. We rode the entire trail through Missouri and enjoyed the sightseeing along the way!

Monarch-Chesterfield Levee Trail

Great if you like flat rides!

August, 2017 by ronsteinbruegge

Not a bad trail. Very wide and lightly traveled during the week. I like flat trails even though the wind and sun can mess with you at times. There are many prettier trails in West St Louis County, but this one is still good for a steady peddling workout.

Katy Trail State Park

Great weeklong experience

August, 2017 by sterfrylovesyou

We rode the whole thing in 6 days. We did it in March of 2015, and it was an awesome experience. The "green tunnel" hadn't formed yet as most of the trees were just starting to grow new leaves. It was very rainy, but luckily we brought our ponchos and it didn't ever rain too bad on us. We camped along the way. In my opinion it is the best way to go about it. I would camp in the actual camping sites, because the first night we camped off the side of the trail and I was paranoid all night and didn't sleep well. We started in Clinton (we had a friend drop us off) and ended in St. louis, and then took the train back to Kansas City where we were living at the time. We used road bikes, and because of the rain sometimes the bikes would sink into the trail, so I would recommend something with better wheels. Overall it was a beautiful experience, and would recommend you do it if you have a chance. very wide, and there are no super steep inclines.

Richland Creek Greenway Trail

Parking

August, 2017 by melissa.staffen

There are beautiful sections of this trail and I'll absolutely walk it, again and again, however I feel it's incredibly important to note that there is no parking at the endpoint off 3rd and Cleveland. Instead, it looks like a shady part of town. I drove around and found a parking area near Monroe and Bornman, at the ball fields.

Katy Trail State Park

I've done this end to end a few times

July, 2017 by the3

This is the best trail in the country, IMNSHO. That I live near it may have something to do with my opinion :). It does get more interesting as you go west past Jeff City. It also gets more remote from resources and is less well kept. Since this mostly follows the Missouri River, it's subject flooding, a lot. If you have the gear for cold weather, it is much better in the winter as you don't have to deal with the occasional trail users who (while innocent) don't understand trail etiquette and it's not likely to flood or have a tornado. I've been on the trail after/during both. The Missouri cresting and engulfing the trail behind and in front of one is, I have to say, the scarier of the two scenarios, in my experience.

Truman Park/St. Stanislaus Trail - Missouri River Greenway

Truman Park Trail

July, 2017 by loxx69z

Truman park trail has alot to offer.
Kid friendly playgrounds, picnic sites, a pond for fishing, & hiking/ biking trail.
True indeed, the paved trail is short, but if you get an "itch to venture" take the paved trail to the end and explore the hiking trail which will take you to St.Stanislaus Conservation Park @ Aubuchon Creek.
It's a scenic journey & loads of fun to mountain bike through.

July, 2017 by 5plager8

The spring floods of 2017 really did a number on this trail. In fact, a portion of the trail eroded and the trail got rerouted at a small part. That section is currently gravel, so skating isn't an option. Everywhere else in the park is paved trail and is very nice. The floods did create a lot of mud banks too.
