There were 3 of us riding the Katy trail a couple of years ago during mid-June (very hot, 90+ deg), camping along the way. We arrived in Pilot Grove early afternoon in time to enjoy the City Pool for a couple of hours. The pool felt great after riding in the heat. It started raining, so we ate supper at the deli close to the trail. It was very enjoyable talking to the girl who was running the deli, she let us stay there until it stopped raining. Went back to the park where the Town Mayor had personnally opened and restocked the park restroom. We felt like celebrities. Couldn't pay them for camping there, so we walked around the park and picked up trash. There are some of us planning to ride the trail again in mid-August (not the best time of year) but one of the our stops will be Pilot Grove.
