A group of 8 or so will be biking the Katy Trail for the first time. Where would you say would be a good first experience for an easy, scenic ride? We'll likely ride two days about 10 -15 miles per day and stop to enjoy a quaint town with a fun place to eat and lodging.

Best I can think of is to stay in Rocheport. One day ride out and back to Cooper's Landing, and one day ride out and back to Boonville. Make sure to check when Cooper's Landing is open. I think that's beyond your mileage goal, though. Maybe stay in Augusta and do Marthasville and Defiance? Or stay in Tebbetts and do Mokane and Jefferson City? The towns on the Katy Trail are a little bit too far a[art to do what you have asked with 10-15 miles of riding, I think. I guess if you have someone driving a vehicle, you could do Boonville-Rocheport-Cooper's Landing, or even Boonville-Rocheport-Columbia.

Stay in Hermann and do out and backs. Great scenery both ways and tons of places in Hermann.
