Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments

Besides the trailhead, there is nothing *at* the trailhead in McKittrick, and nothing visible,
either, so it's not obvious how to get to any of the services that are listed. To get to the
Loutre Grocery, follow the gravel road over south to 94, then turn right for about a mile
almost to 19. From there you can cut through the parking lot for the Amoco to get to the

We didn't realize McKittrick was on the north side of the trail, otherwise we would have tried

Trek are you overheated? WEST side of the overpass for the spur trail. I know you know which side it's on!

Yes, Loutre Market is VERY EASY to get to from McKittrick, in fact you can easily see the building from the trailhead. I agree the trail is not marked well enough though.
