Mountain Biking KATY 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.
