Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
The Frenchtown Inn in St Charles

What a great stay!!! Very accommodating and friendly. Good shower, comfortable bed (and pillows). I rode from Springfield to Machens and then back to St. Charles and I had the BEST breakfast of the whole trip. Definitely will stay there again.

How was the Katy Trail between St. Charles and Machens especially around MM 35? It's often closed. I plan on riding it in a couple of weeks.

Jerry, the trail is fine between St. Charles and Machens (rode it 6/5/2018). There was a tree down on one side of the trail right near the lowest point, approximately 34.5MM, but otherwise the trail is dry and clear.

(Actually, I turned off at the last road crossing and went to Portage Des Sioux instead of visiting the Machens trailhead since there's "nothing to see there.")

Thanks Dennis. I'll be riding it on June 17th so short of a flood between now and then, all should be good.
