This is a super easy trek. Simply take the Katy Trail Spur over to the Missouri River Bridge. You look like you will be going under the bridge and actually will. Follow the gentle ramp up, up, and up to the Bike/Pedestrian Bridge. This is the only way you can cross the bridge as one of the bridges is down for maintenance and traffic is horrible.. Once you cross the bridge turn left on West Main. As you go down the Hill you will see the Missouri State Capitol building. At the bottom of the hill there is a great bike shop called Red Wheel, Tell Nick, Eric sent you... Then continue up and around the Capitol building drive, to the right, it is a circle drive. When you get to the opposite side of the Capitol building, turn right on to East Main. Go to the first stop light and turn Left at Madison Street. Go to the bottom of the hill and you are at the Station.. Good Luck!!

Your left turn at the stop light east of the Capitol will be on Jefferson - not Madison

Will possibly be parking at Mokane trailhead and riding to Jefferson City. Might have to leave vehicle overnight. Would this be OK and would vehicle be safe there?

Leaving a vehicle overnight in Mokane should be fine.

Someone told me last night at work that vehicles have been broken into at Mokane trail head. Not sure if info is correct but I have no reason to doubt this person. Ron
