Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
additions to the trail

I have been hearing all of this stuff about extending the trail into st.peters and making the trail longer pn both ends. Does anyone have a clue of what it is that they are going to be doing and when all of this will happen?

Actually the KATY used to end in Machens until some soil/trail composition issues happened and made that last part impassable. So on the east end the trail has gone "to the river". On the west side there are three route proposals largely spearheaded by K.C. rider, and neighborhood entities. All they have now is a group but that is a start. Will it get done soon (1-3 years) maybe not, but at least there is some gumption about it, and in the meantime send an e-mail to the DNR and just tell them simply that you want the KATY to go "end-to-end",or not but exercise your right to express yourself. On the east side the Confluence Trail System has some interesting ideas for continuing on to Illinois via the Chain of Rocks bike/pedestrian bridge. Enjoy the Voyage all.
