Description

This trail travels from Clinton to St Charles. A useful website for identifying stops and amenities along the trail can be found here.

The Katy Trail is a rails-to-trails project converted from a prior railroad track. Notably, it passes through rolling farmland, forests, and tallgrass prairies. Food and lodging/camping are all convenient to access from the trail.

The Katy Trail begins southeast of Kansas City in Clinton. In most places, trailheads and rest stops conveniently sit off to the side of the road. Occasionally, the trail follows along portions of the highway.

The trail is covered with a crushed stone, giving the feel of a hard dirt road. The trail is mostly flat and well marked along the way.
