Rock Island Spur of Katy Trail State Park

Beautiful Trail!

June, 2017 by lsantillan_tl

We rode from the Medford Trailhead west for about 8 miles and back on 6/26/17. The trail was in fantastic shape and we enjoyed riding past Rock Island Lake where the locomotives used to refill their boilers.

We got caught in a torrential downpour for the last 3+ miles on our way back to the car. Although it didn't make for the best ending to a great ride, we were very impressed at how the trail maintained its integrity during such heavy rain.

We can't wait to go back and ride other sections of this trail.

Creve Coeur Park Trails

Good trail

June, 2017 by mike.hamp

Good trail and well taken care of, but the traffic as a biker is super heavy especially on the boat house side. Not many large hills, but the traffic on it is what makes it not as enjoyable.

Katy Trail State Park

Wow

June, 2017 by webuy

My wife and I rode the whole trail over 6 days, including the "closed" section between mile markers 34-35. [which was easily ride-able]Wow! It is hard to come up with anything bad to say. Great conditions the entire length. A few shirt bumpy sections, which were not as bumpy as most trails. All this spots were marked well. The whole trail was signed very well.If you have ever considered a through ride, do it as soon as you can. It is truly amazing.

Monarch-Chesterfield Levee Trail

Section closed as of June 20 - south of the Chesterfield Valley Athletic Complex

June, 2017 by dmcquinn69

Also, the bridge over the Missouri River (I-64 bridge) is temporarily closed.

A construction worker from the sewer district said the trail would be closed until March 2018 - the closed section is between the Boone's crossing bridge and the Chesterfield Valley Athletic complex. You can bypass the closed section by using gravel roads to connect to "North outer forty road". Ride on this road for about 1/2 mile to bypass the closed trail section.

Also, the bridge over the Missouri river is also closed. So you can't get to St. Charles County or the Katy Trail. I'm not sure the duration of this closing, but it does not look like a major project

Katy Trail State Park

Easy riding trail

June, 2017 by smithc061309

We chose to ride a section of the Katy Trail between Matson and Hermann on June 9th. This was our third bicycle excursion, and my favorite by far! We stayed in Hermann, and opted to utilize the BikeHermann bike rental and shuttle service so that we could have a one-way, continuous ride (we aren't big on ride-out-ride-back). The shop owner, John, was very helpful and gave us pointers and sites to look for along the trail, such as old-timey general stores and historic markers.

This trail was very well maintained; there were a few spots where new lime/gravel had been added due to flood damage in May. All things considered, this trail was repaired quickly and repaired right, and any place new material was added was well marked by "rough surface" signs to give trail users a little warning. Trail markers are plentiful (so much that we rarely used our trail map), and the section we rode was mostly shaded (maybe 3/4 of the route), which made for a comfortable ride. Several benches, wineries, and trailheads offering water, restrooms and other amenities were plentiful on this section as well. There are some really great views of the river around mm 96, and the sandstone bluffs along this route are gorgeous.

At McKittrick, we took the Hermann trail spur off of the Katy and onto MO Hwy 19. I was a little concerned about sharing the busy road with cars, especially crossing the bridge over the Loutre River. However, the bike lane on this bridge is very generous on space and the area in general is bike-friendly. The second bridge, that crosses the Missouri, has a separate bike/walking path on the west side. I would come back and ride this one again, or maybe the next section to the north. This is a very nice trail.

St. Louis Riverfront Trail

Safe and great for the family

Biked the trail near the St. Louis Arch. Very safe, and a dedicated lane each way for bikers and a dif. path for walkers.

Rock Island Spur of Katy Trail State Park

Great Trail

May, 2017 by avwarcpo

We rode the Western 10 miles out of Pleasant Hill and found the trail to be in excellent condition. The scenery is excellent and the getting out of the city/suburban setting is really there. Great job Missouri!

Rock Island Spur of Katy Trail State Park

Great trail

May, 2017 by syncro87

I ride fairly regularly, rode one longer ride from Pleasant Hill to Windsor then on to Sedalia on the Katy. PH to Windsor was about 46 miles, total to Sedalia was about 70 to the Amtrak station.

There was about a 6 mile stretch near Chilhowee that had larger rocks, was a bit of a pain. I've heard they have rectified that, now smaller rock, but haven't ridden that far again to verify.

Other than that small stretch, a great trail. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the relative lack of water and restrooms. The Katy has nice water stops in many areas. Not much water on the Rock Island, and it's pretty far from Pleasant Hill until you get to a store, i.e. Chilhowee or Leeton. Make sure to take water with you.

Pleasant Hill PD was very kind, let me park my car overnight in their lot. I took the Amtrak back home from Sedalia to Lee's Summit, then caught an Uber to PH the next day to retrieve my car.

Route 152 Trail

Wide, hilly and smooth. Awesome concrete trail.

May, 2017 by mybulkmail

I was in town on business and sought out a nice running path/trail. This one is perfect. I parked at the Lifeway Christian book store and started my run from the trailhead just behind the store. This site lists it as 3 miles, but it is longer than that now since they've added quite a bit of trail to the east past where the map shows it ends. Expect some decent hills and a couple of major roads to cross, but this white concrete trail is as smooth as can be for biking, running, rollerblading, etc. I'll be back every time I'm in town.

Little Blue Trace Trail

Great Ride!

April, 2017 by karonpage3

Completed trail in about 5hrs going and coming back. Very nice scenery definitely going back when the plants and leaves are fully grown.
