Stay on the MKT spur until you get mile marker 1.4. Here there is a parking lot that leads to Stadium Blvd. Stadium is heavily traveled, but there is a good, wide shoulder on which to ride. Turn left (north) on Stadium, there are several motels about two to three miles away. Some suggestions are Baymont Inns & Suites, 2500 Interstate 70 Dr. SW; Days Inn, 1900 Interstate 70 Dr. SW; Drury Inn, 1000 Knipp St.; Holiday Inn Select, 2200 Interstate 70 Dr. SW; Econo Lodge, 900 Interstate 70 Dr. SW. These are also several good places to eat near all these motels. www.gocolumbiamo.com/ParksandRec/Parks/MKT_Trail will give you good information on the MKT.
