Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
western side scenery

I am taking non-cyclist girlfriend for a 60 mile (two days)round trip ride in a few weeks. I am unfamiliar with the trail from Easley to Clinton. Tips requested for the best scenic part of the trail between those two points. Thanks!

Our favorite 2 day ride is from Rocheport to Hartsburg and back. This about 25 miles each way. Lots of scenic river and bluffs. Several places to stay and eat at each end.

Having done Clinton to Sedalia, I can say the big draw is going to be the seclusion you'll find from Sedalia to where the highway departs from next to the trail going out of Clinton. Other than that, there is Sedalia itself (the original rail depot and a couple of other things), Windsor (the bicentennial Katy rail car and some other things), some restored plain areas, and a couple of nice scenic areas.

YMMV as with anything. I thought it was a good experience and would love to have the opportunity to do the rest sooner rather than later.

Sedalia to Boonville is my favorite part. The trail is often elevated and makes for some beautiful scenery. The Hotel Bothwell and the Hotel Frederick are both great places to stay. That section is less used so you are less apt to see a lot of people.

Clifton City to Boonville is about 24 miles. Even though your not on the river, I thought it was a very secnic. Actually got a shuttle from Boonville to Clifton City and rode the 24 miles back. Nice little resturant in Pilot Grove.
