A Trip to the Woods.

This is a great place to bike. If you enjoy a leisurely ride on a wooded trail with plenty of room to pass this is it.

Folks, this is a one-of-a-kind gem. The trail goes between wonderfully charming small towns and is shaded most of the way. People of all ages and abilities can enjoy this trail since there are virtually no dangers of getting hurt or stressed out (thanks to being completely away from cars and traffic). The trail is so flat, anyone can ride... More

We rode the Katy Trail with over 300 other cyclists. It's a great trail, well-maintained and very wide. The grades are never very steep and the scenery at times is just awesome. I highly recommend this for any serious cyclist who likes to tour on bike.

A great ride put on every year by the Missouri Dept of Natural Resources/State Parks. The ride is well organized and always a good time. The trail is well kept and scenic with nice trail heads throughout. If you like biking rail trails I would definitely recommend this one.

We are most familiar with the trail in Columbia, MO and in Rocheport, MO. However, it crosses most of the state of Missouri. It is a great bike trail or walking trail. In Rocheport, it follows along the Missouri River. It is often shaded by the river bluffs and cooled by the breeze coming across the water. There are walking... More

the trail is well kept. Nice benches near Boonville to sit and rest. It's pretty in areas. Boonville has a nice rest station close to a convenience store.

This is the second time we've done this trail. It's an easy ride - you don't need a mountain bike - but be prepared for flat tires and weather. You will love it! It's definitely worth it.

June 3, 2015. We had started hiking from New Franklin going west and stopped at the depot in Boonville going toward the 193 mile marker where we had stopped the day before after hiking from Pilot Grove and returning. After leaving the depot, it started raining. We had umbrellas but they became saturated and our shoes were soaked. Returning from... More

From either Columbia via the MKT Trail, Boonville or Rochport this trail is a must for riders. Stop at the winery in Rocheport or Katfish Katy's on the weekends for a beverage and this will be one of the most picturesque (and historical) rides around.
