Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Walk need feedback

We want to do a 10 mile walk on the Katy Trail. Starting at Weldon Springs (where is the starting point?) to Matson. Has anybody ever done this before? Is the terain level or hilly? Appreciate all comments. If you have a better recommendation we would like to hear.

Lots of us have walked that stretch. Its not a bad stretch at all. The whole trail from Boonville to Machens is essentialy flat as a board. You might run into a few rises crossing roads or levees, but nothing daunting. Take water and a snack and take a break or two and enjoy the scenery. Are the people going on the walk used to walking at least that far? Decent shoes are a must, and have a good time.

Good section of trail to start on. Take water and enjoy the walk. Defiance is a nice location for a break.

you might find the thread about vehicle break-in's at Weldon Springs and consider starting at Matson instead.
