How far off the trail is the Amtrak in Washington and how practical is it to get there on bike? I would prefer to use this stop and avoid getting into St. Louis. Thanks, BF

Clinton to KC

Does anyone know the safest bike route from Clinton to KC? I will be biking cross-state late May, from STL to KC. I'd like to avoid the major highways, but that might not be feasible. Any feedback would be immensely helpful.

I called Katy Trail Shuttle and the wrong phone is listed on the web. The man who answered said he'd tried to get them to change the website, and they hadn't. He gets about 10 calls a day on his cell. All I can say is that's not a very responsive b...
