Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Family ride

I am planning a trip with my two daughters and would like to know what part of the trail is more kid friendly. By that I mean the occasional swimming pool, playground etc. I plan a mix of camping and hotels and would also like to know what part is more scenic, since i am not sure if we can complete the entire trail.

The larger towns like Clinton, Winston, Sedalia, Boonville, Columbia, Jeff-City, and St Charles have the greatest range of public/motel-pools. Also, many of the villages have nice parks that allow overnight camping. A bed-&-breakfast is a nice treat, too. Past posts indicate the Boonville-to-Jeff-City route to be the most scenic because of the combined high bluffs and Mighty-MO River. But, that preference can depend on the riders themselves. Some riders enjoy the wild flowers/plants, birds, and wildlife more. :)

The question of riding the trail with kids comes up a lot. Successful KT rides with kids are posted and reported in several places, sometimes on personal websites, but they are not always easy to find. You might check the ride/run/hike reports on the homepage of this website. Good luck.
