Day 1 of our adventure - We took the Amtrak from Sedalia to Kirkwood. We had pre-arranged a shuttle from The Touring Cyclist. A very nice gentleman met us at the station and transferred us and our bikes to the trail head in St. Charles. Excellent experience all the way around. The train ride was much more entertaining than we had expected. One piece of advise - no matter how much you think you know which way to go when you hit the trail - punch it into your GPS and verify it. It isn't well marked in St. Charles. We were totally turned around. Long story short - we finally made it to Weldon Spring. We stayed in a home that we found on airbnb. It was about 3 miles off the trail but turned out to be so worth the effort. Super family...wonderful home. Search Weldon Spring, they call it Hotel Clark. Would highly recommend...
