Just finished our first KATY Trail ride today, Sedalia to the Creve Coeur Park Connector Trail. Here are SIMPLE directions to the train station.
Take the Page Bridge Connector Trail/Creve Coeur Connector (red) to the Mallard Lake Loop (green) at the round about. Follow the green signs around the lake, past the Lakeside Cafe, all the way to the end of the bike trail at Creve Coeur Mill Road. Turn left onto Creve Coeur, to Olive. Turn left on Olive, cross 270, then turn right on New Ballas Road. In a couple more miles (after I64/40) turn left on Clayton, then right on Geyer, then left on Adams. And bingo, you've made it to downtown Kirkwood and Amtrak station on Argonne.
Creve Coeur had moderate traffic, two-lane road, drivers were courteous. There is a bike lane on much of Olive, and drivers were courteous. Ballas was lovely, and Geyer was absolutely delightful. All in all, a pleasant way to tour some of the St. Louis suburbs.
About 15-16 miles, total (forgot to check my odometer at the beginning of the Connector).
