Is the Columbia Spur Trail hilly at all? I have a recumbent that probably belongs more on the street than a trail and I don't like the hills. IS the riding surface on the spur trail (chat) comparable to the Katy Trail?

This place is a MUST. The staff catered to us, and to our bicycles (we were riding the Katy Trail). The room was one of simple elegance with an historic feel to it. I highly recommend it!
