I am going on a 4 day bike riding trip with 2 of my cousins and one of my friends. I was just wondering what neat and cool places there are to see aroiund these areas. Are 5 places that we are stopping are, Cinton, boonville, north jefferson,marthasville, and St Charles. It is going to be fun if anybody can give me advice to pass on to my freinds and relatives. It would be helpful, thanks

There's nothing in North Jefferson, so you'll have to get across the river to Jeff City. There is the capitol and you can spend time both inside and out. There is a museum in the capitol that is worth seeing. Also check out Lohman's Landing, which is just east of the capitol and contains a museum and historic buildings. There are several good places to eat downtown as well.

Here's a list of points of interest along the Katy Trail. They're not all in the towns you mentioned, but you will be passing them along the way, so you may find some of them to be worth looking out for. Don't count on spotting the "pierced rock" this time of year though - too many leaves on the trees.

Lady of Sorrows Shrine is just off the trail a few miles and is worth the trip up the hill. I am

not Catholic, so some of it I don't understand. But, it is way interesting...and a bit bizzare. It

was built in the late 1800s/early 1900s and is just interesting. There is a big sign just west

of Rhineland. There is a grotto and an interesting stations of the cross that is huge slabs in

the ground (think Stonehenge). It is just interesting and bizarre and a nice calm, quiet,

peaceful place to visit. Here is a link to a website that has pics and more info:

Oh, and don't miss the mid-Missouri version of Stonehenge just west of Cooper's

Landing...on the north side of the trail. Trust me, you will know it when you see it! : )
