Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
If you want groceries stop here (Mokane Market)


For a long stretch going east there are not many places to get groceries. This is a nice place to stop and get some. We stopped here and got a bottle of wine to go with our sandwiches we got carry-out at the Trailside Bar and Grill in Rhineland.

The Mokane Market is a nice store, and very clean when I've been there. Another option is the Loutre Market in McKittrick. You can see it from the McKittrick trail head. You can either climb the hill on the east side of the trail tunnel under hwy 19 and ride down the shoulder to the store (the easiest way if the hill is not too overgrown or you're not afraid of chiggers) or you can turn south on the gravel road just east of the trail head to hwy 94, then west to hwy 19, then north to store (sounds complicated, but total distance is probably less than 1 mile). The Loutre Market is a "full service country grocery store"; they have everything a cyclist on the Katy could want except a bike shop. I have no connection to the Loutre Market accept being an occasional customer for the last 30 years as I have family in the area (the current building is only a couple years old, the first 2 were destroyed by fire).

I rode the trail in April from Clinton to Hermann. Stopped and spent the third night at the shelter in Tebbets. Rode to Mokane the next morning and stopped at the Mokane Market and got a sausage biscuit and coffee for breakfast. They were very nice and heated the sandwich in a microwave for me. I sat around a table with about 15 elderly retired farmers and shot the breeze with them about fishing and farming. Everyone was extremely nice and accomodating.

The Loutre Market is an oasis along this section of trail. Over the Labor Day weekend, I rode from Clinton to Dutzow and this store was outstanding. Great hot and cold deli w/ in store tables to eat at or picnic tables outside in shade. Buy something and they'll let you get free ice and water from the soda fountain for your bottls. Very close to the trail; perhaps a block from the trail head. Very friendly employees too.
