Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Most scenic stretch

I live in Kansas City and am wanting to take a good full day or two and ride the trail. I have only rode from Clinton to a could stops in and it was not real scenic. Was not bad, but I have heard that there are some magnificent stretches with tree canopies and great vista's. Can anyone tell me where the best stretches, in your opinions are? My wife will drive ahead and I will ride to meet her. Thanks.

The best ride may be from Rocheport to Jeff City. That would be a good one day's ride. If you have ridden only east from Clinton to Calhoun or Windsor, you have not see the best part of the trail. The trail has a canopy pretty much from Windsor to Boonville.

Christopher, the area you road is prairie fields an not to the mighty MO yet. Rocheport east is good. Augusta east is good too.

The favorite weekend ride for my wife and I is drive to Hartsburg, have breakfast at Dotty's. Ride west to Rocheport along the river and bluffs. Several options to eat and stay over night in Rocheport. Ride back to Hartsburg in the morning and have lunch at Dotty's.

The stretch between Portland and Treloar has quite a bit of tree cover along with the best views of the Missouri River with benches to relax on during your ride. At Bluffton there is a Conservation area called Grand Bluffs with one of the best views of the River bottoms. It is a good hike to get this view though.
