MO Research Park in Weldon Spring
MR from St louis on 09/25/2018 03:52 PM:
Where are there bathrooms between weldon springs all the way to Augusta. And where are there places to park close to bathrooms. If any.

Based on this website and personal memory, there are no bathrooms at the Research Park parking area. Heading west, there is one at the Weldon Spring trailhead (with parking). Next, Defiance has restrooms at the bike shop and restaurants (parking as well). The Matson trailhead has both restrooms and parking. The boat ramp area before you reach Klondike also has both. One final option (before Augusta) is to bike/walk up the hill (using paved path) to Klondike Park, which has restrooms next to the camping area.

Hope that helps.

I highly recommend picking up a copy of the Katy trail map. It will list all available accomodations ( water, restrooms, camping, etc ) at each trailhead.

If you are talking about the bridge which was broken by an ambulance on the spur to the Research Park, yes it is!

Is the Bridge by the Water Treament Plant that connects to the Katy Trail open yet??? Would like to ride there Wednesday April 12, 2017

Yes, it is. It took many months, but they have now patched the small part that broke through.
