Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments

Can I get help and advice on picking up the Trail out of town on the north end? The map(s) appear to show a rather convoluted route through Sedalia. (I'm riding up from Clinton, taking the trail west to east). Staying at the Bothwell, but I want a good start the next morning and want to pick up the route out of town towards Pilot Grove. Any landmarks, help, advice or known pitfalls would be appreciated.

Go east on third street from the hotel. That will take you to the Katy Trail Depot. From there you can follow trail to the marked streets following the signs to pick up the Katy heading out of Sedalia.

Thanks. That helps. Looking forward to the ride.

The trail actually goes right through town. Those directions are good, but if you head east from the Bothwell, you will cross the KATY.

The route through Sedalia is not abundantly marked, so to speak, but it is marked well enough if you are paying attention. You will be fine.

The trail has been marked on the streets by DNR going both directions for their annual June ride. As Hank says, you need to pay attention for trail an direction markings. Also the neighborhoods are some would say "bike free zones".

The KATY routes onto streets at the Sedalia Depot.

To head east to the trail from the Bothwell, head east on 4th Street to the Ddepot. Continue on 4th Street east from the depot (~0.7 mile), Emmet Avenue north (~0.4 mile), Boonville Street east (~0.4 mile)

We were there just last Monday and got directions from volunteers in the gift shop. There are signs and markings on the street. All of the streets are residential with light traffic.

Would be great if they repainted markings on streets.
