Two books for fueling your Katy Trail dreaming!
Brett Dufur from Rocheport on 01/17/2023 12:28 PM:
Anybody else dreaming of spring adventures on the Katy Trail!? These two books will fuel your fever and give you some great getaway ideas!

The 11th edition of The Complete Katy Trail Guidebook has been massively updated. Lots of great new info to share! The Katy Trail Nature Guide is also a handy resource for the trail!

A recent cyclist wrote me back after receiving the new edition and said, "The 10th edition was amazing but the 11th is out of the ballpark."

Proceeds from these books directly fund the writing and research of my Rock Island guidebook, scheduled for release this year and the feeding of two lazy cats.

The guidebook is being stocked by some businesses along the trail (yay!). Buying from them supports Katy Trail small businesses, so thank you!

Available online here:

Best wishes for some great outings on the Katy in 2023!

What is closest spot you can park to walk to the tunnel & approx mileage? My mom would like to see but has trouble walking.

It’s maybe a quarter mile from the trailhead but you could probably park at the end of Central Street and cut that in half.

Is the beautiful Rocheport tunnel what now has this detour I've been reading about?

There is a detour, and on the detour you would not ride through the beautiful tunnel. But, most people would backtrack just a little to ride through it.

Going west to east..My way would be to cross the little walkway bridge (at the baracade) that leads to the Davisdale parking lot. Cross straight across Hwy 40 to gravel road and go left.. The road will fork. Stay on gravel to the right ( Missouri Conservation Road) and walk up the levee.. Cross the little creek (usually only ankle deep).. Once you cross the creek you will see the trail to your left.. Easy Peasy.
