Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments

Marthasville is looking kind of sad since the 10 years I was last there. We ate at Twin Gables B&G and had a pretty decent lunch- very friendly folks there.

Did they ever sell Choo Choo's campground?

Marthasville was a dissapointment. We didn't find any of the services listed on the website. I wouldn't recomend the section from Augusta to Marthasville. The trail is out in an open field with little scenary along the way.

Just curious which services are listed on the website but not available. I just took Scenic Cycles off the website this morning, but other than that I believe everything that's listed here is still in business. For Twin Gables or the S&K minimart, you need to ride south from the trailhead for 1/4 mile or so, so you might not have seen them from the trailhead.

And to answer Doug, as far as I know ChooChoos is still up for sale (haven't heard otherwise, anyway).

My wife and I rode to Marthasville from St. Charles and while I agree that it wasn't the most senic part of the trail we had been on, it was still an enjoyable ride. We did'nt see any places to eat in Marthasville when we were planning the trip so we stopped at the Blumenhof Vineyard near Dutzow and bought cheese crackers and sausage to eat for dinner. We ate a late lunch in Augusta so we would'nt need a big supper. We stayed at the Critter Cottage Bed and Breakfast and I would highly recommend it. They had provided snacks for the evening along with a bottle of local MO. wine. They even offered to take us somewhere to buy groceries for dinner. The cabin was fantastic with a huge jacuzzi tub. The breakfast was very good and there was alot of it. They picked us up at the trailhead and took us a couple of miles to the cabin out of town. The next morning it was pouring down rain so they even took us to Agusta where we were able to wait out the rain so we could resume our ride. I can't say enough great things about this B&B. We look forward to staying there again this summer.
