Lee's Summit - Rock Island Connector Routes
Brent Hugh from Missouri Bicycle & Pedestrian Federation on 04/28/2019 02:55 PM:
Jackson County & the KCATA are planning to officially open the first 6-mile section of the Rock Island Trail from Lee's Summit to the south Raytown area in June 2019.

So how do you get from this new Rock Island Trail segment to the Rock Island Trail in Pleasant Hill. How do you get from the Amtrak Station in Pleasant Hill to the new Jackson County Rock Island Trail or the State Parks Rock Island Trail in Pleasant Hill?

We have mapped bicycle-friendly routes to make all of these connections, and the main Rock Island connector between Lee's Summit and Pleasant Hill is now marked on-street with fluorescent orange arrows and initials "RI". More details here:

Brett thank you for everything that you and your organization have done to help make this happen. Very exciting to see the Rock Island Trail expanding westward!

Is there a bike route from Independence to RI trail head or a schutte service.

Happy Trails

We biked the 61/2 miles from Lee's summit to brickyard road. We parked at David Hartman park. The trail was awesome, so was vale tunnel.

I'm taking the Amtrak west to start my trip doing the Katy Trail. Can I get off the train in Lee's Summit? Thanks

You can get off the train in Lee's Summit. You can either take roads or get a ride the distance to Pleasant Hill trailhead of the Rock Island Spur of the Katy Trail, if that's your plan.

The Amtrak does stop at Lee's Summit. In 2017 we started in Lee's Summit and returned via Amtrak at Kirkwood station. There is a fairly easy 17 or so mile rode route from Pleasant Hill to Lee's Summit.

I forgot I had saved this route from a friend in Lee's Summit. He's ridden it many times and feels the best way.

Take the 13.6 mile route through Greenwood Missouri. BUT stay south on Allendale Rd. Follow that road till 175th St. It will change names a few times. Turn left or East on 175th. That will take you straight to Pleasant Hill. Cross the tracks and turn right onto the trail. That will take you to Pleasant Hill and on your way East to Windsor.

Hope this helps and you have a great trip!
