Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Fall trip for occasional riders


My husband and I am planning a trip from Rocheport to St Charles. We plan on taking about 6 days enroute with a side trip to Herrman. Since it's technically all "downhill" is this a do-able trip?? We ride fairly frequently but never more than 20 miles in one day. And will our car be safe in Rocheport?? Is that a good trailhead?? We have relative in St Louis that will shuttle us back but do you know of any shuttle service that goes from St Charles to Rocheport?? And does anyone know how much that might cost?? Thanks for any help or suggestions!!

Its VERY doable. In fact, 6 days will give you a lot of time. You should be able to get lots of sight-seeing in. The Rocheport trailhead is very safe and may be the nicest one on the trail. And you will love Hermann. I won't go into all your questions, but tool around on this page and you will find everything you need to know. Have a good ride!

check to see which trailhead towns have lodging available, it may require more than 20 miles a day on some days.

Once you get on the trail I think you will find 20 miles is not going to be very far to ride. You will probably end up ridng more.
Have a great ride!

Well thank God for a little competition! Folks here have asked for a long, long time how much shuttle services cost....and all they get is a number to call. Kudos to Barb with Show Me MO Tours for being so forthright with information! You shoulda showed up along time ago!
