In my previous post, I forgot to mention that we took the Jefferson City spur trail that runs from the North Jefferson trailhead into Jefferson City where we spent the night. You cross the river on a dedicated pedestrian/bicycle lane with spectacular views. However, the signage to the spur trail could definitely be improved. It would be very easy to bike right by the spur trail without realizing it. The entrance to the spur trail is across a parking lot about 50 yards southwest of the North Jefferson trailhead. If you pass the North Jefferson depot going east, you've gone too far. On the flip side, once you get to the spur trail, the signage is excellent to the bridge.
