Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Katy Trail Theu-hike

I just completed a thru-hike of the Katy Trail. I started October 14th and ended my hike on October 31st. I had 2 0 days and one 7 mile day. I ended up hiking 16 days with a average of 15-16 miles. This was one of the best long distance backpacking trips I’ve done. The towns and services were very good and the accommodations along the trail were outstanding. This is a perfect thru-hike for people wanting to see the beautiful Missouri River valley. The fall colors along with the beautiful people I met made this a trip for the books.

Don't hear of this often. Lots of cycling the entire trail but thru hiking, another story!
That is great, would love to read more about your hike.

I also hiked the trail but did it differently. It took me 21 days (average 10 miles) but I did it over a period of a year, starting in Clinton and walking various sections on different days. Did Clinton to McKittrick in 2017 (May, June, September, October) and McKittrick to St. Charles in a one week period in May 2018. I admire anyone who can hike the whole thing without stopping. Let me know if you want to hike it; I kept a record of all the bench locations! Ladies, no bathrooms except at trailheads.
