Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Bluffs along the river - where?

I rode the Katy several years back and there was a section of the ride which was absolutely gorgeous. If memory serves it was between Hartsburg and McKittrick. The path was bounded by the river on one side and some magnificant bluffs on the other. It went from shade to sun repeatedly and I seem to recal a couple of tunnels. It seemed to be a popular destination as I stopped at a spot with a Bike shop and market and the lot for the trail was full with many riders. If anyone can deduce the town for me from my description I would greatly appreciate it. My wife has picked up riding and I would love to share this location with her...thanks.

Sounds like Rocheport to me....the only tunnel on the trail west of town with massive bluffs along the river east of town.

I'd have to agree that it sounds like Rocheport but don't forget the tunnel under Hwy 19 at McKittrick and the bluffs east and west of there.

I also agree that it's probably Rocheport. I think the "bounded by the river on one side and some magnificant bluffs on the other" comment rules out just about everywhere else.

Don't forget about the Bernheimer blufs between Treloar and McKittrick -- spectacular river vistas on one side, towering bluffs on the other.

I wouldn't say it's the "only" place--we have some beautiful bluffs along the river from
Hermann into Defiance.

There are some nice bluffs where the Katy runs through Weldon Springs conservation area.
