Is overnight camping allowed at this trailhead?

Overnight camping is not allowed at any of the trailheads.

You can’t (legally) camp at Clifton City (so don’t do it), but camping at the city park in Pilot Grove is only about 10 miles away. There, they have covered pavilions, electricity, bathrooms, a nearby C-store, and other services.

I concur with the Pilot Grove Suggestion. Not only that, you can grab a beer if Deon's is open, reload with essentials at Casey's and if you get there early enough grab some delicious pie from Katerina's

We'll be starting a ride on the Katy Trail next weekend and would like to know if it will be safe to leave our car at the Clifton City trail head. Have there been any instances of break-ins at the trail heads?

We have not left a vehicle at the Clifton City trailhead. May be ok to do so…is pretty remote without much of a parking lot.

We have left our vehicle at the Sedalia depot with no problem. The locals watch the lot and the folks at the depot will take your car/personal info in case you need notified.

Hi! I bikejor with my dog every week. This is training for me and the dog.
The gravel road is dangerous, you need to be careful. Nice trip!

Newer vault toilet, well ventilated, no smell. Not too bad.
