I do not have enough time to ride the entire trail during the first week of May. We can probably manage 35 miles per day on our bikes loaded as they will be for camping, and given our physical conditioning. What 100 mile section of the KATY would be the most picturesque and interesting for two oldsters in our 70's?

I suggest Boonville to Hermann/McKittrick. In 2017 we rode from Lee's Summit to Pleasant Hill to pick pick up the Rock Island trail and from there to Windsor on day 1. We then rode to Boonville on day 2, Jefferson City (with side trip to Columbia) on day 3, Hermann on day 4, and St Charles on day 5. I was a great trip. There are plenty of rest stops and towns along the way each day.

We rode Sedalia to Jefferson City in 3 days and was very comfortable. A lot of the Trail is shaded and is along the scenic Missouri River with beautiful bluffs. Probably could have done more but was our first time and not sure how we would do.

Our first time riding the Katy Trail this past October, we rode 140 miles over 4 days from St. Charles to Rhineland, We averaged about 35 miles a day and it was manageable was for the four of us. You could start in St. Charles and bike to Hermann. We all loved the route from the views, path, and it was never crowded. Since we enjoyed the ride so much, in early April we are doing another section of about 100 miles over 3 days from Hermann to Jefferson City, and then ride west for another 30 miles or so, then back to Jefferson City. Enjoy!
