Stayed at the Roundhouse Camp ground September 21-22, 2009. Host & Hostess very
nice. Tent camped, fire ring, trash can, picnic table, very level, good drainage, other
campers followed 10:00 PM = 07:00 AM lights out and quiet time. Shower adequate, 1 of
2 toilettes available in men's room, wife said same in lady's room. We were concerned
when a boy scout group came in later Friday night, toilettes held up!
Saturday we from New Franklin into Boonville, then on past Pilot Grove and marker 205.
Ate lunch at Becky's in Pilot Grove then returned to New Franklin Roundhouse.
Everyone we met on the trail were very nice and they saw you stopped they always ask if
you were okay or needed assistance. 34 miles total out and back.
Sunday (rain) we broke camp and drove to Columbia for breakfast, then on to N. Jefferson
City. We rode to just past Claysville, Mo. Saw wild Turkey's on the trail and read some
interesting history about Lewis & Clark. A short ride but then weather wasn't the best.
+12 miles total out and back.
After a night in Jefferson City, we drove back to Rocheport Trailhead. The trail was dry,
level and fast. Good trip to New Franklin Trailhead, very fast ride out and back, then a
burger at the Bike Shop at Rocheport, very good! +20 miles total out and back.
We will be back!
