Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Shuttle from Machens? Our Katy Trail plan

Hi, we are new to the Katy Trail, but have been looking forward to riding. I have to be in St. Louis/Brentwood area on Monday May 23rd for this year for an appointment...after which we are hoping to drive to Kirkwood and park, take the train to Sedalia and set up camp. We then hope to bike Sedalia to Clinton and back on the next day. They bike the entire Katy Trail over the next few days. On our last day, we are trying to figure out how to get from Machens trailhead back to the Amtrack station. Any suggestions? Is there a safe way to ride it, or if we are totally over the cycling thing by then, LOL (okay, me not my husband) is there a shuttle from Machens to the train station that anyone has used or recommends? Thanks!

You may want to end your ride in St. Charles or ride back to St. Charles to arrange a shuttle. There aren't really any roads to Machens.

The closest shuttle service would probably be Bike Stop Cafe, in St. Charles. Also a good place to stop for lunch.
