Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Katy Trail

We're planning on riding the trail near Hermann in mid-April. Two questions: which way (east or west) is prettier/nearer the river? and starting from Hermann is it safe to cycle the highways to the nearby wineries?

Hermann to Portland (west) is a pretty ride along the bluffs in several places.
With Hermanoff and Stone Hill in town, I'd opt out hitting the highways to visit others. Although Adam Puchta has some very good wine...IMO it is not worth the effort to visit, even by car. If you know the grape that you like, look for Puchta wine(or others) at Loutre Market just south of McKittrick...the cost is much less than at the winery.

Ohhhh, Trek, I humbly disagree.
To me Puchta is the best winery in the Hermann area. But then again, to each his own... ;-)

They do have very good wine...it's not available in St. Joseph though, so we drive to north Kansas City to buy it. Gotta by volume on those trips!
