My husband and I just returned from 4 days on the trail from Sedalia to around Bernheimer. As this was our first cycling trip, I just wanted to encourage other novices to go for it even in mid-July! The shade on the trail and early morning starts helped a lot. Our plan had been to leave the car in Sedalia, ride as far as Washington, MO and catch the Amtrak back to our vehicle. Well, mid-trip we got a call that Amtrak could not serve the Washington station or accommodate our bikes. We began cancelling B&B reservations thinking we would just have to turn around and head back toward the car when Doug of the Rendelmann Home B&B offered to shuttle us back! Doug is as friendly as they come and cooks a fine meal too. If your needing a place near Bluffton, I think you'll enjoy Doug's easy going style and helpfulness. Thank's Doug!

Are there any updates to closed portions of the trail? I've been watching the trail closings portion on this site and they haven't changed in quite a while so I wasn't sure how often they are updated. I've been also trying to follow the comment section for recent trail riders....no mention of detours. Were you able to stay on or did you take any detours? Anyone else?
