I love this part of the state-wide park. The trail between Boonville and Columbia is a great place to get some excercise and enjoy nature.

Katy trail is awesome. I think it's something that should be adopted clear across the US It would allow more people to get out and get some exercise.

I've ridden the trail on several occasions and always enjoy the scenery and solitude. It's more interesting in the West (Jeff City and westward). The trail into Columbia is very handy if you're heading that direction. The view from the bluffs at Eagle View are spectacular after a tough climb. Make sure you see Boathenge The trail is hard packed... More

We biked the entire trail. Loved it. Truely spectacular views and very nice people. Be careful though, there are long stretches without services. Some of the services in small towns that are suppose to be there have shut down. Be sure enough water and gear to change your tires, etc. The BikeKatyTrail.com website is awesome. Trail is extremely well maintained.

My husband and I enjoyed a four day ride on the Katy Trail, Sunday thru Wednesday, the first week of October. My husband is an avid cyclist, I am an occasional rider. It was an easy ride, we averaged about 50 miles /day. We road our recumbent bikes, and enjoyed every minute of it! It is a beautiful trail, mostly... More

The Katy Trail is in wonderful condition and is an amazing feature for bikers and hikers. Unfortunately for us, during our visit in September the thermometer was near 100. We biked for a couple of hours right after sunrise. Enjoyed the trail, but we're not in physical condition to face that kind of mid-day heat. We plan to go back... More

Yet another beautiful leg on the Trail for Boonville to Rocheport. By far the highlight was riding thru the tunnel into the town of Rocheport...so I guess that makes it the highlights of highlights!

This is a fabulous part of the Katy trail with beautiful bluffs and bridges. Up river from Rocheport is a lovely section with tunnel and a nature reserve. Down river has wonderful bluffs. You can park your bikes and hike up to the winery and bistro. lovely little walk and fabulous scenery from the winery. I highly recommend the grill... More

Rode from the Clinton, MO trailhead all the way to the end at Machens, Mo. The trail is relatively flat, with the most variety of grades before Boonville. The 72 miles from Clinton to Boonville is rather desolate, except for Sedalia, with a couple of little towns off the trail. More populated as you get to the areas around Rocheport,... More

I absolutely love this bike trail!!! It's soooooo beautiful! While you ride, you can look up at the bluffs hovering over you. It's really cool. The scenery through the entire ride is so beautiful. I did 32 miles with my boyfriend and we went through Rocheport and I forget the names of the others.... I didn't want to bring my... More
