Posted by Steve Ewing on Feb 8th 2018

The Katy Trail offers over 200 miles of amazing riding. Flat terrain makes this trail great for all cyclists. When riding this trail you’ll come across many amazing small towns that will paint the perfect picture of “small-town americana”. These small towns make traveling the trail easy by providing plenty of accommodations. There’s plenty of great history along this trail. Over half of this trail follows the same route that Lewis and Clark took when traveling up the Missouri River. Riding the Katy will be a trip to remember.
