Deer Creek Greenway

Under Construction

May, 2022 by dschrader06

I guess I tried this trail on a bad day. I will try it again when the construction is complete. May 3, 2022 the trail is under construction around Rocket Park and the Ball Park. The trail is closed there. Rode up Marshall Road all the way to Brentwood to try and get on the trail. Crossing the street to get to the Loraine park side of the trail was difficult. The 4 wheelers coming down Marshall were not being very respectful of us two wheelers. So I tried the crosswalk method that puts you onto a sidewalk. The ride around the park was pleasant and the concrete trail was in nice shape. I followed the trail back to go back to my starting point past rocket park and on to the shopping mall where I started. Back up Marshall (so so) to get on pacific. Pacific is a really quiet street. Made it back to the trail and came upon the other side of construction closed trail. At least at this point I could see the shopping center across the ball field in front of me. So I decided to ride across the outfield. Now I was faced with crossing another 4 lane road Laclede Station. There is a tunnel under the road. Maybe I should have selected that route. But This was another cross walk for safety to the shopping center.

Deer Creek Greenway

Short but nice

April, 2022 by john.steger

It’s nice for a short walk through one park, around another, and through a neighborhood. We’ve been on it often, especially using it as part of a longer walk or bike ride. The only issue currently (spring 2022) is part of the path along Deer Creek is closed now because they are working on the creek.

Katy Trail State Park

An unexpectedly gorgeous ride!

March, 2022 by bikeridesandbreweries

Who would guess that a ride in the middle of August in the middle of Missouri would be so spectacular? The Katy Trail’s inclusion in the Rail-Trail Hall of Fame is totally deserved. While we only had time to ride a small stretch of the 240-mile trail that bisects the state, if the rest of trail is anything like what we experienced midway, it’s not to be missed. As of 2021, it’s also the longest continuous rail-trail, built upon the old Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad (MKT) or the Katy, for short.
We chose to put in close to Rt. 70 near the northern-most point of the trail in the tiny but picturesque town of Rocheport, population 244. The trail is the main attraction in Rocheport; signage was clear, there was a nice parking lot, a cute depot with restrooms, and a great little café called Meriweather just steps away from the trail.
Heading east, on our right was the broad and beautiful Missouri River. Every mile or so, we passed inviting benches that faced the yawning expanse. The trail itself was wide and the packed gravel and dirt made for easy pedaling. Towering above us were dramatic sandstone, limestone and granite bluffs, at times reaching up nearly 75 feet. Caves could be seen embedded in the stone and occasional signs warned us not to stop for the next quarter mile where falling rocks were a threat.
There appeared to be three levels of terrain along this portion of the trail – the water level, the trail level, then the top of the bluffs level. We passed only a few others the whole time we were on the trail.
There is winery within walking distance of the trail or a popular brewery in nearby Columbia for celebrating a great ride!

Monarch-Chesterfield Levee Trail

Already a flat, smooth way to access the Katy Trail, Howell Island, and roads around Wildwood. Promises to be a nice loop around Chesterfield area.

MetroBikeLink Trail

CX skiing

February, 2022 by whitebear87

With the recent snow, there was enough of it to do some cross country skiing. We started at the Scott/Shiloh Metro station and parking was easy and safe.

Boschert Greenway

Sweet ride to NewTown

January, 2022 by jbranham99

This is a beautiful ride from the Katy to NewTown. We usually stop at Marsala's Market in NewTown for a snack. Don't miss the Blomstre flower sculpture made of old bike parts that towers over the intersection of Mel Wetter Parkway and the Little Hills Expressway

Katy Trail State Park

New Franklin to Rocheport

October, 2021 by cwrustin

We have ridden the trail over 25 years, camping along the trail using the Katy Trail Guide Book. We just camped at the Katy Roundhouse this fall and rode west the first day, and east to Rocheport and beyond the second day. We were very disappointed to find that because a bridge was out we had to ride on Highway 40, for over 2 miles, with cars and trucks speeding along at 50 to 60 miles per hour, and not slowing or giving a wide berth at all. We were on trikes, so felt very vulnerable, but met other users who were not happy about the situation either. Had there been a warning about this situation, we would have trucked the bikes over to Rocheport.
