Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Day Trip


My daughter and I are casual riders, but in good shape. We have one day to ride and want to make the most of it. Thinking of a roundtrip from Booneville to Rocheport, or we could go east from Rocheport. What is your best recommendation? Thanks for your input. This is our last special time together before she heads off to college.

Rocheport east has more to offer than Boonville east. I'd go Rocheport to Hartsburg or there about. Or stay the night in Boonville at the Frederick and drive to Rocheport to ride east.

I did ride Rocheport to Boonville last weekend, but it was just a production ride to log fitness miles.

Are you McGonigle of McGonigle Market on Ward Parkway?

Yes, I am one of the McGonigles of the Market.

That's often a planned stop on KC trips for us. Fantastic meat counter like no other.

Yes, my Dad started that in 1952 after he settled down post-war. He was a flyer who flew 63 bombing missions in Europe. He had 9 kids, the youngest of whom, my brother Michael, now owns and runs the Market. Needless to say, I grew up on good food.

Neat family story, makes me want to go to KC and check it out. Enjoy the Katy, don't miss Hotel Frederick if you are in Boonville!
