Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Biking with small kids?

My family plans (kids 6 and 1) to bike a portion of the trail coming from Kansas City. We're thinking about staying in Boonville because of the lodging options (Holiday Inn Express)in particular but I'm unsure about the ride on the trail in Boonville...Does anyone know about the this portion of the trail? I'm also wondering about the best time of year to go. Any suggestions about traveling with small kids?

There is not much to entertain kids either direction from Boonville. If you stay at the Holiday Inn, riding the trail from there eastward toward the trailhead is a rather long downhill.....Lard Hill. It's a nice downhill ride...but you have to ride up it to get back to Holiday Inn. You might consider driving to Rocheport to get on the trail.... more neat things to see from the tunnel east to the petroglyphs.
