Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments

I went with a group of 9 riders from New Franklin to Columbia for lunch and then back to New Franklin. Stopped and saw some sights. Had fun. The MKT side spur was great! It takes you through some very nice scenery, and eventually deposits you right into Columbia. Very shady as you get closer to Columbia. The grades were never difficult. I'd ride this section again anytime! You could even stay IN Columbia, and ride the MKT south to Huntsdale, and back to Columbia, if you were with people that didn't want too long of a ride! Very pretty area. Kudos to whoever created these rail trails! Kansas now needs to get it's act together better about such things! (What about it, Governor?)
