Is the Katy Trail shaded from Hermann to St. Charles? We will be completing that section in the extreme heat and hope it is canopied by the beautiful trees.

Whew, if you are talking about this week, the humidity will turn the high 90/low 100 temps into a heat index of around 110. Any shade you find on the trail will not provide relief from that. You will also find long stretches of open trail along the fields of crops. So in a nut shell, plan on it not only being hot but daaaamned hooooot.

The devil would feel right at home.
