What is the best way to get from Clinton to either Warrensburg or Sedalia? I'd like to hike west from St. Charles to Clinton, and then take Amtrak back to the St. Louis area.

Hey can anyone tell me how much the shuttle costs if you take it from St. Charles to Clinton? Do you recommend the shuttle? I'm 21 and in decent shape, how long should I allow for the trip?
