Missouri: Katy Trail Tour
8 Day Inn Tour
Come join us on one of our favorite rail trail tours. The Katy Trail is the country's longest rail trail and is beautifully graded in finely crushed limestone over hard-packed dirt. It's been a favorite among cyclists for decades. We'll cycle its entire 240-mile length free from traffic from Clinton to Machens, Missouri. You'll have time to explore the quaint historic towns along the way and appreciate the beauty found beside the Missouri River.
