Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Biking with kids

My grandson wants to bike the whole trail this coming summer. I have searched the web and there is little there on kids riding long distance. I am currently planning a day trip from Sedalia to Green Ridge, then a two day overnight trip on the Rock Island Spur to test out our packing, camping and overnight staying. Has anyone rode the trail with their children? He is 11.

Steve-thank you. The little girl was the same age as my grandson. I think I might be underestimating him. Also gave me a couple ideas of places to stay.

I've had more than a few guests visit riding the 47 miles of Rock Island and entire Katy with kids 10-12 range. Think all in building up to it. Chilhowee on the Rock Island section has the Corner Store, open 7 days a week and cyclists love for food and rest. Also camping in Chilhowee if want to ride RI in smaller sections. Enjoy!

Thanks for the information, Kim. Your information has encouraged me that my planning is heading in the correct direction. I am planning to ride the Rock Island with him as a train up for the trip; testing out our load, equipment, and camping out. I was planning to over night in Chilhowee and check out the Corner Store while there.

How fun - sure you all will have a great time. Let me know if I can help in any way. Enjoy!
