Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Hermann highway 19 Bridge.


If by ill luck you get into the McKittrick trailhead after dark and you have not arrainged a shuttle across the Mo19 bridge into Hermann, I recommend you consider camping out on the McKittrick side.

I have been riding a long time on streets, roads, and highways and never had a more harrowing, less enjoyable experience.

During the day I have generally not had bad experiences, but at night, something changes in the character of the drivers on that bridge.

It desperately needs to be replaced.

The new bridge is a piece of cake in the day light. The old bridge plan scary. I think the trail is offically closed after dark. Not safe to be on any trail or bridge after dark.

The new bridge is open with a lit bike path. I have not ridden it in the dark but it shouldn't be any trouble as you are seperated from traffic by a wide shoulder as well as a wall.
