I have a group wanting to get to the confluence park from Machens. Is the trail connection to roads so a fellow can park a vehicle on the road and bike onto the KATY and back. I will meet the group and shuttle them to the park when we rally at the trails end.

I can't tell from your question whether you are asking to leave your car at Machens. There is no place to park at Machens. It's a standard Katy trailhead (signage, restrooms), but is surrounded by private land, mostly railroad property (still active). I usually get dropped off on Machens Road nearby; that's how tight the space is for vehicles. The closest place to park you car overnight is St. Charles.
You can bike from Machens to the Confluence park, where there is car parking. But I suggest taking the back roads, not Hwy 94.
