Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Go East or West from Jefferson City for best afternoon ride?

We will be in Jefferson City for a soccer tournament and would like to bring our bikes for an
approx 25 mile round trip out of Jefferson City. Will it be more scenic to go East or West out
of Jeff City on the Katy?

My vote - go west to Hartsburg and back - has a nice overview of the river with a picnic table and benches along the way and of course Dotties in Hartsburg - a must for first timers.

If you are riding on a saturday or sunday Hooibrink's claysville Store is the best food on the trail. Laura makes all their pies and cobblers (others buy theirs at Sams) Mark makes incredible chicken and ham and great brisket or ribs when he gets in the mood. Claysville is just 3 miles east of Hartsburg. To make a reservation look up Mark Hooibrink as the store is not listed.

I agree, this time go west towards Hartsburg. Then, the next time you come (you'll be back, after you've seen how great the Katy
Trail is you'll give up soccer and be addicted to riding the trail) you can go east.
