Trail Description
About this trail
The Katy Trail is a rails to trails conversion of an old Missouri/Kansas/Texas line. It is a crushed limestone path stretching across most of the state of Missouri from Machens (near St. Charles) to Clinton. Construction is underway on an old Rock Island line that will connect the Katy to the Kansas City area.
Although very flat and not challenging for many mountain bikers it provides access to several different singletrack trails and other greenway connectors to nearby communities.

Review: Decent ride, wide gravelly path that follows an old railroad bed. Go for the scenery along the Missouri River. Due to the extreme ease in riding this trail, you can get some serious distance!

Review: In St. Charles County, you can use the Katy to connect quite a few trails such as Klondike, Matson Hill, Lost Valley/Hamburg. You can get some serious climbing in on those great trails.

Review: The KATY trail is certainly not a sweet singletrack ride. What it does offer, however, is an avenue for off season, long distance riding. That is exactly how I used the trail this time and got more than enough miles in to suit me.
