Katy Trail State Park

Out and Back from Rocheport

September, 2022 by bsnicholson63

Rode 15 miles east from Rocheport and then back for a total of 30 miles in Sept 2022. Weekday ride with a few other riders around. Trail is in great shape and very much worth the trip. Surprisingly my wife saw 5 snakes and I saw 1 along our out and back. All were small and hopefully harmless (we didn't stick around to find out).

Lunch at the Meriwether Cafe was nice for us too. All in all that section of the Katy Trail was worth the visit. We are east coasters and targeted this trail for our vacation.

We live 10 miles from the Clinton trailhead as such we ride it often. We have risen rails to trails in many states. Shot of being concrete one of the best. Crushed limestone is the next best and they do a fr job of maintenance. Come to Missouri and enjoy a great trail

nice trail

September, 2022 by dorshimer5

As a trucker I decided to get back into cycling and I’ve read and watched videos about this trail. Ran across it unintentionally and rode about 3 miles of it. Just a nice Amazing trail. To bad I don’t have time to ride more of it.

Great views! Cool link on the riverfront trail!

nice scenic ride

Take the McKinley bridge over to Illinois! Start during the day, it’s easily a three hour ride and we’ll worth it!

Fee Fee Greenway

Best Scenery

Nice nature paths off the trail, saw a deer, geese and a heron when I made it to creve couer. This is a very well maintained trail that offers great views and a decent bike workout. 10/10

Start at Aqua Port and take this trail to Creve Couer Memorial Park. Best views! Awesome Nature Trails off the path! Very well maintained!

Mississippi Greenway

beautiful

This park never disappoints. The scenic overlook is breath taking and the trails thru the woods are shady and peaceful. Everything is well marked, and the posts of random information are interesting. Just lovely and dog friendly. Lots of trails, wooded, river front, and cave. Different lengths as well.

Might have been nice at one time

8/29/22 "Paved" trail from Alton to Pere Marquette was awful. Unmaintained, roots pushing up asphalt in many spots, weeds making trail narrow, no bathrooms for 20+ miles. Grade D-. If you're planning to ride this trail be sure to use a mountain bike. Was probably great when new or last maintained.

Easy access to the bridge from small parking lot on the Illinois side. Plugs into the Riverfront Trail and you can head down to the Arch.

disappointed

The construction is still going on so we didn’t get very far after starting at the Arch. Very dirty and lots of homeless people.
