Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Tebbetts dining options

We will be staying in Tebbetts on Tuesday Sept 20. As I understand it, there are no options for dining in town. Can anyone suggest a grocery stop on the way from Rocheport to Tebbetts?.
Thanks in advance,

Some of the campgrounds there carry a few supplies: Katfish Kates, Coopers Landing, Wilton Store. Might want to get your stuff before starting out.

There are several places in Jefferson City, a short side trip from the trail and easy to get to now that there is a bridge bicycle/pedestrian path addition. Paddy Malones, Aris Pizza, Madison Cafe, and Prison Brews to name just a few.

Stay on the trail and eat at Dotty's in Hartsburg.

Thanks for the suggestions. What is the best way to get into Jefferson City. On the map it looks like a nightmarish highway cloverleaf is the only route into town from the trail.

Naw. Take the southbound spur just a few yards west of the trailhead to Airport Road (or whatever that road is called now). Then go east to cross the mentioned bridge. The business district is a block or two SSW from the Capitol bldg.

Take the Greenway into town. It has signs marked to follow. The bridge now has a bike/pedestrian lane on the side of the bridge. Follow the ramp up and you can cross into Jeff City

Pam is so right. Just look and you will see the trail from the North Jefferson Trailhead to the new pedestrian/bike path marked. If you want to see a video of the new pedestrian /bike path go to www.bethehistory.com and click on the "In 100 years" link. The video will not win an academy award or any spelling bee trophies but hey , I had fun making it. The bridge over the Missouri River at Jejjerson city is now safe and enjoyable for all. It is so safe that a few days ago I met a little old lady who had tone in her late 70s, in a wheelchair with her care giver on the bridge.

Cool video Cathy. So up the winding ramp is how you access the bridge? Its hard to tell from the video but is there enough room for a tandem bicycle to make the turns on the ramp?

Chuck, I don't know the answer to Your question. I hope someone else can answer it.

Dotty's is a great place to eat. But, they are only open Wed thru Sun 7 am to 2 pm.
