My wife and I did our first Katy ride this week from Jeff City to Sedalia. It was an awesome ride. We parked in Sedalia and took the Amtrak to Jeff City, then biked back, spending one night on the trail. We decided against staying in the B&Bs because...

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

Just wondering about riding about 50 miles of the trail and wondering if I should avoid the section where horses are allowed? I would rather not ride through it or have to dodge too much of it. Does anyone clean up after the horses?

Is it possible to park at Clifton City trail head for a couple of hours? I want to ride Clifton City to Sedalia and back. I could park at Sedalia, but I'd rather not have the long climb on the return.

Still no water at this trailhead in Clifton City! Be sure to fill up at Sedalia or Pilot Grove as that can be a long hot stretch.

Biking near Clifton City today I found a pair of glasses. They look like men's prescription. I left them under the shelter at the Clifton city trail head.

Left Sedalia and headed the wrong way until we passed over Hwy 65. Light but steady rain all morning. The trail is not in bad shape although there is quite a bit of debris. I've run into two road crews trimming. Right now sitting under cover in Clift...
