Dutzow to Washington bridge
Woodchuck on 03/18/2019 07:21 AM:
What is the status of getting from Dutzow to Washington across the bridge? Is there a bike lane on bridge? Shuttle? Taxi? Would prefer not to ride across in car lane if at all possible. Thanks.

Allen from Shawnee on 03/18/2019 08:49 AM:
There was a recent discussion on this and a person who lives there says the bridge is open but bike path is not complete and open yet. There is a 10 foot shoulder next to the travel lanes for cars on the bridge, so you wouldn’t be traveling in lane with cars. Keep in mind if you are really afraid of traveling around cars that the route from the trail to the bridge is along a hiway with a shoulder and some of the riding in towns will be around cars.

Travis from Mexico, Mo on 03/23/2019 01:49 PM:
Does the bridge connecting Dutzow and Washington have a a bike/pedestrian lane at this time? Just looking into lodging in Washington only if a bike lane is complete.

Hank on 03/23/2019 07:38 PM:
The bike lane is not open and won't be open until mid-2019. I don't think MoDOT has given a date. However the new bridge has 10-ft shoulders which are fine for bike riding. Highway 47 south from Dutzow has 8-ft shoulders and this is a busy highway. It is doable though not ideal in my opinion. I live in this area and would have no concerns at all crossing the new bridge on the wide shoulders, but am not a big fan of the Highway 47 stretch with the narrow shoulders and high traffic.

Augusta Bottom Road is an option, though this is a gravel road that is also pretty highly trafficked. In dry weather the gravel gets extremely dusty and really is not a good option. It is tempting to take this route because it is a more direct route to / from Augusta on the Katy Trail, but it too is not ideal.

Dave from Kirkwood on 03/23/2019 11:29 PM:
I was on the bridge today (in a car en route to Marthasville trailhead). Hank explains the situation very well. My only extra comment is that one needs to be careful getting onto or off the bridge (with nice wide shoulder) given the construction. The shoulder currently disappears on both ends, so one may need to wait for a break in cars to get on or off the bridge safely.

Katy Haus from Marthasville on 03/29/2019 05:54 PM:
If you prefer to shuttle, give Revolutions Cycles or Hoeffel Haus B&B in Washington a call. They both will shuttle bicyclists to/from the Katy Trail and Washington.

Bill from Fort Worth TX on 06/15/2017 03:20 PM:
Rode between Dutzow and Mc Kittrick on Monday. New gravel has been placed in several sections of the path. very deep and loose. Be careful

Steve from Saint Charles on 09/21/2009 07:34 AM:
Art, of the Brick Inn in Washington, recently helped some stranded Katy Trail bicyclists (us). When we called him without warning, he rushed over in the Brick Inn Cadillac convertible, whisked us to Washington, and gave us a tour of the town to boot! With service like this, you know the Inn has to be outstanding.

Camping in Dutzow?
CueBallSTL on 03/26/2012 05:12 PM:
Is there any camping in Dutzow? Obviously, it's not one of the listed services, but was wondering if anyone knows of any option that might not be listed. I know Marthasville has camping, but for various reasons, that location doesn't work for us.

Anonymous on 03/27/2012 09:00 AM:
Nothing advertized or talked about there. The church or city park there might allow something.

Kevin from Jeff City on 03/30/2012 01:00 PM:
Marthasville is nearby...lots of camping there.

Anonymous on 03/30/2012 01:07 PM:
Good idea. Even though Marthasville has camping and that location won't work for you for various reason, know that there are lots of places to camp there.

Jim from St. Thomas on 03/30/2012 04:48 PM:
If you're not planning on having a fire I don't know that you would have a problem if you pitched a tent at the trailhead. Another option would be to call the deli and see if you could pay to camp behind their place.

A Pauley from The Villages Fl on 03/22/2010 06:25 AM:
Is the bridge to washington mo very unsafe for bikers? We wish to start at Dutzow, park our car and bike to Jefferson city then return to washington by amtrak.

Trek on 03/22/2010 08:05 AM:
No. It is very, very narrow with no shoulder. Call a cab or make arrangements with your lodging provider to give you a shuttle across.

cunninghamair from O'Fallon, MO on 03/29/2010 08:01 PM:
My husband made the mistake of going across once for the car. Don't do it. Very


alaska marcia from anchorage on 07/26/2011 11:54 PM:
I just read that there is a new bridge and it has a bike lane. Gotta love progress when it includes cycling.

SteveK from saint louis, MO on 07/27/2011 07:13 AM:
Alaska, the original question was on crossing the Washington, MO Missouri River bridge and there is nothing on that bridge that resembles a bike lane and it is about 80 years old. Other bike lanes/crossings that are more recently built were for Hermann, MO and Jefferson City, MO.

marcia from anchorage on 07/27/2011 02:13 PM:
Steve, thanks for the clarification. I must have been reading about one of the other bridges. Guess I'll just have to take the lane.

Cunninghamair from St louis on 07/28/2011 10:20 AM:
We are seasoned road riders, and I advise again not to cross this bridge. Taking the lane here will only get you run over. It's a very narrow, highly travelled bridge with FAST traffic. I just crossed in my car a few weeks ago and my sister squealed all the way across. Call a cab. It's not worth it.

marcia from anchorage on 07/28/2011 11:22 AM:
Ok, thanks. Not worth the risk.

Elwood from Chicago on 09/12/2011 01:30 AM:
I live in downtown Chicago. I often cross the Roosevelt Road bridge six lanes of traffic with the bike lanes between 1 and 2 then 5 and 6. I have steered around crack needles behind aggressive cabs with buses on my butt. Family logistics were such Washington Amtrak was my best departure point from the Katy Trail. I planned to bike across the Washington bridge with my single wheel trailer.
I had a ticket for the 12:31 pm Amtrak, September 10th, 2011. I got up early at Klondike camp and left the rainy soft muddy Katy trail in Augusta. I traveled Augusta Bottom Road from Augusta to RT 47. It was raining hard when I got to the Rt 47 intersection about quarter mile from the bridge. The numerous fast moving cars and trucks were kicking up a mist over the road. My cell phone was wet and acting flaky. I had been so confident about crossing I did not have any cab numbers anyway. A pickup pulled up beside me and signaled left. I stuck up my thumb and motioned to the back bed. A local father taking his son to youth football game loaded my bike and gave me a ride across the bridge. I left a couple soggy bills on the seat.
If they ever build a new bridge it will not have a bike lane named in my honor.

kelly from nj on 09/12/2011 08:43 AM:
I was going to suggest hitching across. I've had lots of good luck with friendly pick-up truck drivers willing to help me get me and my bike through tight spots. A local in Washington, MO, suggested that if you do bike across this bridge that you use the whole lane and make cars wait behind you. Of course, the cars behind you might not like this strategy.

Dutzow/Brick Inn (Washington)
GAR on 09/21/2010 11:57 AM:
My wife and I highly enjoyed our stay at the Brick Inn in Washington MO.

It started with a pickup at the Dutzow trailhead and a ride/tour into

Washington in a convertible Cadillac! Owners Art & Kathy are inviting

and accommodating to your every need. The location provided access to

Washington's downtown area which is full of shops & restaurants. All in

all, highly recommended.

Greg from Boone County MO on 09/21/2009 06:17 AM:
The owners of the Brick Inn are bike friendly. They will do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable, including a free shuttle service from Dutzow across the bridge to Washington. That's a GREAT service at the end of a long, hard day on the trail. Plus Washington is a great town with lots of interesting shops & restaurants.

Dutzow Deli & Restaurant (Dutzow)
hwhoover from Marion, OH on 01/06/2009 09:39 PM:
I biked the Katy Trail late May 2008. I didn't eat at this restaurant, but the lady and I think the evening manager who worked the night of May 29th did me a huge favor...

I biked that day from Hartsburg and it was about 9ish and starting to get dark. I pulled into the B & B right off the trail at Marthasville, no one answered my knocks, so I called the number on the sign/brochure. For some reason they were not accepting any boarders that night. Total bummer. I then biked into Dutzow and saw the Deli/Restaurant and talked to them about local lodging. It seemed that my only choice was to go to Washington-10 miles away and across that bridge. It was totally dark at this point. Understanding my plight, the lady/manager took it upon herself to help a stranger in need, loaded me & my bike into her minivan and drove 10 miles out of her way to the "Sleep Inn" in Washington. I am not sure what I would have done that night if she hadn't help me, and I was too tired to go any further on the bike, but with her kindness and generosity I was in a luxurious motel with an air conditioner, clean sheets, and a hot shower. I will never forget the kindness of this woman who helped me out-a total stranger. The next time I am on the trail which hopefully will be in the next year or two I will definitely seek out the Dutzow Deli & Restaurant and be able to thank her again. I am sure if the food is as good as the people that work there it would be a fantastic place to eat.

Paul from Fairview Heights, IL on 09/08/2009 12:57 PM:
We tried to eat here on Labor Day. I guess business was slow, as they closed menu service at 2:00. My wife, who arrived before we did, said the menu looked appetizing. Will give it another go later!

Gary from O''''Fallon on 09/08/2009 03:17 PM:
My wife and I have eaten at the Deli many times over the past several years. You will not be disappointed; great food and prices.

Cvrz from St Peters on 09/08/2009 09:32 PM:
I've written about the Dutzow Deli before. It's great! I also stop there when I'm just driving through. Also, The brother of the guy that has the bike shop in Defiance is supposed to open the bike shop next to it this coming spring.

Blumenhof Vineyards (Dutzow)
Green Machine from Lawrence, KS on 05/20/2009 01:51 PM:
Highly recommended. We hit this first thing in the morning before starting off our trek in Dutzow. Good wine, great atmosphere, excellent staff. Part of our party stayed after we left and said it got very busy close to noon.

L.P. from Wichita, KS on 11/30/2008 12:37 PM:
The wines at Blumenhof are some of the best we have had in all of Missouri! There are two options to get there, 1) bike on the main road through town - no shoulder, or 2) take the little gravel side-trail off of the Katy Trail. You will need to walk your bike up the trail, as it is steep and muddy, but not very long. It is just a little east of the deli on the Katy trail.

I used to eat about 20 meals a week here. During the summer months they will sometimes have live music in the beergarden behind the restaurant on the weekends. The owners, Karl (Stuttgart area) and Tina, (Austria) are usually accessibl, and very nice. Gary

I rode from Creve Couer all the way to Dutzow and back in one day. Very grueling ride. I ate my lunch at this local deli. The service was excellent and the food was good. This is a great stop on the trail and it is always nice to meet all the kind folk that live far outside st louis.

A pleasant stop on our first Katy Trail trip (22 miles). My wife and I shared a foot long deli sandwich. It was either very good or I was very hungry!

Anonymous on 08/02/2008 07:32 PM:
IF you like your food sauteed in nicotine!!! We stopped there on July 7, opened the front door and immediately left. We prefer to patronize businesses on the Trail but not at the expense of our health!

Doug from Bluffton on 08/09/2008 07:58 PM:
Was just there. Had a good beer and sat out talking to other riders. I couldn't smell tobacco and asked several other people during the day if they had; to a man the answer was "HUH? what smell?"

Anonymous on 08/11/2008 02:17 PM:
Cigarette smoke on the porch, ashtrays on the tables. Maybe your sense of smell is so dulled you can't smell it. If someone smokes, the odor is THERE.

Doug from Bluffton on 08/12/2008 09:17 PM:
I guess so. All the rest of the people have no sense of smell and don't have enough sense to sit outside if it did bother them. Only a finely tuned nose like yours can discern all the subtle offenses of the day.

GB from O''Fallon on 08/13/2008 08:04 PM:
My wife and I have eaten at the Dutzow Deli many times over the past several years and realy enjoy the food. My wife has asthma and is very sensitive to cigarette smoke. We've never had a problem here and will continue to frequent the deli.

Matt from St. Charles on 08/08/2008 06:09 PM:
I would like to know if someone could post the business hours for the deli because it seems like they are always closed when I go by it.

Matt from St. Charles on 08/08/2008 06:15 PM:
It says that they open everyday at 7am but I know that it is not true because I was there 3 weekday mornings in a row during July and it wasn't open any of those times.

Right on the trail. Bright, clean, friendly. We sat on porch: wicker & flowers. Have lunch & interesting german beers - yum! The bathroom, which can be used only if you patronize (understandably), is nice & clean.

cunninghamair from O''''Fallon, MO on 06/20/2008 07:59 PM:
We stop here regularly. The only complaint is--get there early! It can get crowded!

Sometimes we round the corner and head up to the Blumenhof Winery.

Is it safe to leave a car in Dutzow overnight?

Jan from Dutzow on 07/13/2007 04:59 PM:
I live in Dutzow and would think it is as safe of a place as any place you could find to leave a car overnight. As far as I know there is no ordinance against leaving your car but it is a state parking lot. The trail lot is right next to the Dutzow Deli and Restaurant so there is activity, but mostly during the day and local people on Friday night.
