I am planning on riding from Clinton to St Charles this July. I've reviewed the forum and it appears that there is only one major closure on the trail. The Salt Creek Bridge which requires a detour. Is the rest of the trail open and passable, ex for limited areas you have to be careful riding thru? Thanks TomBe

Here is the park website with trail conditions: https://mostateparks.com/advisory/80026/current-trail-closures-and-alerts-katy-trail-state-park In general, aside from that tough detour west of Rocheport and few areas with somewhat rough conditions, the trail is looking good. I rode a variety of sections on the eastern half this spring, and it was delightful as usual, with limited effects of last year's flooding.

The trail is closed just a mile or so west of Portland, MO. I used Hwy 94 as a detour. It added 3 miles of highway riding on a steep hilly road with narrow shoulders and blind curves. I later saw that if I had used some dirt roads, I could have shortened my detour substantially. Coming from the west, I saw no warning of the closure on the trail until I actually came to the closure. So, beware.
