I have cycled the Katy Trail about 8 times and just completed my latest ride. The trail this year is in the worst condition of any ride I've taken. There were hundreds of washouts that seem to occur because the ditches have not been maintained or cleaned out and when filled up with dirt and debris, the water backs up and can't drain and then, spills over the trail and damages the trail. I have never seen it so bad. Many cuts in the trail were a foot deep. The bridge 3 miles east of Rocheport is so washed out you should not count and ANY work around other than to take Highway 40 to get to Rocheport. Trust me, I tried and it's impossible. There is one long hill to climb but once on top, it is not a bad ride into Rocheport. I recommend the School House B&B in Rocheport. The new owner, Andy, was a great host. And IF you ike some nice dinning, go to Abigails for dinner. Reservations are required and Andy can make them for you. Hotel Frederick in Boonville and the Globe Inn at Hartsburg I also recommend. And IF, you like adventure and want to meet the "old man on the trail" you need to stay in Bluffton with Doug at the Old Barn. Doug is a very interesting guy and you will never forget him. He'll take good care of you.
