Katy Trail State Park

The Katy is Overrated

August, 2023 by kulp8899

Sure the Katy Trail is very long with some scenic parts but it is no GAP/C&O Canal Towpath. I rode every mile as part of my Astoria to Pittsburgh cross-country ride. Clinton to Boonville had interesting ups and downs but the surface needs a resurface all too much of the way, especially on slopes. Seems they use a different crushed limestone than they do in the east and it just doesn't compact as well. If you ride Boonville to Jefferson City, you've seen the best part. Jeff City to the eastern end is just more of the same for another 150 miles. Access to services was a problem, especially in the east although a do strongly recommend staying at Joey's Birdhouse in McKittrick. If you play the internet right, you can get a cheap room at the plush casino hotel in Boonville.

Rock Island Spur of Katy Trail State Park

Kansas City to St. Louis Trail Route

July, 2023 by trob4cy

If you have a history of riding the actual KATY trail the newer Rock Island Spur may disappoint you a bit. There is not as much to see and do and long stretches without services. But the trail itself is similar with well maintained surface. If you are looking to put miles on your bike for a few days from the Kansas City area to St. Louis area this provides the trail to do so.

Katy Trail State Park

One of the Benchmarks

July, 2023 by trob4cy

In my opinion this is really one of the benchmarks that other trails in the Midwest and nation should look towards when designing their own trails. Not everything on the KATY trail is perfect but when you combine the length of the trail with the services and available activities it is really hard to beat a few days riding the KATY trail. Not many trails in the nation are able to provide an experience like the KATY.

Monitor trail closures / conditions ahead of time and be sure to plan for gaps in water. You get spoiled thinking all trailheads will have water but some do not.

Indian Creek Bike/Hike Trail

Bicyclists, please mind manners

June, 2023 by cobyjb

We've enjoyed living a stone's throw from a relatively quiet section of Indian Creek's Hike/Bike (not just Bike) Trail for over 20 years. It used to be safe for walks, jogs and bicycling. Over the past few years, bicyclists seem to be increasingly assuming it's solely for their preferred use. They do not observe even basic courtesies (including yelling obscenities as they speed by, belatedly declaring "right of way"). Collisions and injuries are increasing. I respectfully suggest: there are more appropriate places to train for your upcoming "Tour de Suburbs", complete with aerodynamic outfits (eyeroll) that bely any pretense you're responsibly sharing a multi-use community area.

Harry Wiggins Trolley Track Trail

Be aware of your surroundings

June, 2023 by sars64113

Watch out for motorized bikes and scooters! Most do not give warning to their passing. Many are higher powered "electric" "battery" operated and exceed a 5 mph speed without warning. Pedestrians and dogs are at risk. Also many of Waldo area homeless stay along the trail. Quite the sight to see!

Great Trail in 2013 plan to ride again soon

May, 2023 by ericday

Did the entire length in October 2013 and are planning to go again soon.

Little Blue Trace Trail

Little Blue- South extension?

December, 2022 by cwowl

Like this trail, hoping it will eventually go south and connect to the more rural portion by the river that's at Noland Rd. & 350 Highway!

Katy Trail State Park

Did it all!

October, 2022 by w7tk5jhvg5

We took the week and rode the whole thing. So much fun and very rewarding. There are a few places with ruts from rain and wear on the trail but plenty of crews out doing improvements and they are fairly well marked. Can’t wait to do it again.

Katy Trail State Park

Great Trail

October, 2022 by jfletc3233_tl

I rode from Frontier park in St Charles to Defiance and back and thoroughly enjoyed the Katy trail. The trail was well maintained overall with a few spots of looser gravel around construction near St Charles. The rest of the trail was hard packed and a great surface for riding. Had lunch at the Defiance Ridge Winery not far off the trail. There is a sign on the trail pointing you in the right direction. They had great food with lots of variety. Enjoyed the peacefulness of the trail and the glimpses of the Missouri River. There were quite a few people out on the trail on a Friday morning and early afternoon.

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.

long trail done right

September, 2022 by dan.allen.50552

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

Katy Trail State Park

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.
