Katy Trail Fast Facts:

  • The Katy Trail is a trail surfaced with ground limestone. The surface is very fine and does not contain large, loose rocks. You do not need special tires for this ride.

  • Because the Katy Trail was once a rail line, it contains no steep grades. While there is noticeable elevation change, you won't encounter any steep hills.

  • The Rock Island connector to Pleasant Hill intersects the Katy Trail at Windsor. It's part of the former Rock Island Line which could become another Rails-to-Trails state Park soon!

  • Katy Trail State Park formally opened in 1999

  • This ride passes through lots of charming small towns, by wineries, cafes, and some of Missouri's most picturesque scenery.
