Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments

Can anyone give me a secure parking area to leave my vehicle for a few days while I complete the Katy Trail. Also has anyone used the train to get back to there vehicle after completing the trail.

Probably not without more information like where you're starting at that you'd like to leave your car.

I was looking at starting at the Clinton area.

There is parking at the Clinton community center approx. 2 blocks from trail head. You fill out a form inside, the lot is lit and police patrol it some. They will call you if there is any problem or if you pick up your car early without telling them.
I have left my car at the Clinton community center many times for periods up to 2 weeks. I generally do out and back rides because it's much easier than arranging transportation and I have the time.
The train doesn't go to Clinton, the nearest it gets is Sedalia (35 trail miles away) I have also left a car at Sedalia trail head for 10 days, I went in to Depot and left information with them. I have left a car in Booneville for 10 days also, I called police and gave them info. I have also used a bicycle shop in Defiance leaving car there and getting shuttled to Clinton. Hartsburg is another good place to leave a car.

Hope this helps and have fun on your trip. Don't forget to stop and smell the roses.

If you decide to park in Sedalia, we have plenty of parking space. Enjoy your ride.

take amtraac to either Sedalia where we can pick you up and take you and your bike(s) to Clinton or go to warrensburg amtrac. either one can connect you to our bed and breakfast in Clinton where you can leave your truck or car.we are next door to the police and one mile from the train terminus on the KATYtrail at Clinton. the cost is $50 from warrensburg or $70 from Sedalia. both rates are based on staying at the Haysler House. If not then we charge $70 and $90 respectfully. AMTRAC charges for taking the bike on the train an additional $10 so you need to reserve both fares.
