Any comments on the feasibilty of a Catrike recumbent on KATY?

I rode my Catrike on the crushed limestone MCT Quercus Grove Trail to St. Louis - no problems.

Last weekend I road the Rock Island Trail and I couldn't ride to the end - too rough at the northern end. It was like riding on a rutted farm lane.

Appreciate any advice/suggestions?

Yes recumbents are good on the KT if you can see in front of you.

Be prepared to get everything coated with dust at your height (we did the trail a few weeks ago on hybrids, but I also ride a Catrike Expedition), but other than that you shouldn't have any problems. The Sedalia- Boonville stretch could get a little monotonous on a trike with all the long upgrades. The trail is pretty smooth.

I have ridden it a couple of times on my old catrike and I thought it did great. Like the other person said, you will get covered in muck! I ride it on my 2 wheeled recumbent now and I do enjoy it more. But my cat was great too
