Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Machens


My mom and I are planning on doing a multiple day hike on the Katy. We are wanting to start at Machens but see it marked that it isn't accessible by roads. Is there a close place to get dropped off?

Click on Machens on the map at the top of the page. There you will see a google map. You can zoom in to see where the trail head is close to Hwy 94 and Machens Rd.

You can get dropped off right at the trailhead if your driver goes along the gravel access road along the rail tracks. However, that is sometimes in bad condition. Safest bet is to get dropped off on Machens Road where it crosses the train tracks and then walk along the access road to the trailhead (about a city block's length). Do not have the driver cross the tracks because that part of the Machens Road is in very bad shape.
