DNR posted today an announcement about how to donate to the Foundation to help rebuild the trail. Severe flooding at Katy Trail State Park has led to numerous trail closures within the park and the cancellation of the 2019 Katy Trail Ride. Nearly 100 miles of trail are underwater, and it may take several weeks for the water to recede in some parts of the trail. Based on the damage caused by the comparable flood of 1993, Missouri State Parks staff expects to find scour holes, washouts, bridge damage, downed trees, debris, silt accumulation and inconsistent trail surfacing. You can help rebuild the trail and accelerate the restoration process by making a donation below to the Missouri State Parks Foundation. Everyone who donates $100 or more will receive a T-shirt commemorating their role in rebuilding this Missouri treasure. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. https://mostateparks.com/page/82026/katy-trail-flood-donations?fbclid=IwAR06UsTTAuXqnIerlBSoHeGqQu6YOfkdRsB71QV5tsrzBAhjMMjvws17TpQ Sharon

Sharon, thanks for passing along the link. I donated because this trail means a lot to me and my family.

Bikerboy - I feel the same way. Sharon

I donated part of the refund from the Katy Trail Ride being cancelled. I'm looking forward to doing the Katy Trail Ride in 2020 and hope that they can get the trail in good shape by then.

Thanks for the link, Sharon. I just donated & hope all of you folks who are able will, too! I haven't ridden the Katy for several years, but would really like to someday soon. So sad that the flooding was so severe.

We just viewed the damage at the former salt creek bridge under the highway 40 bridge west of Rocheport. Very sad. Flood waters are gushing through again. A huge repair will be required. Please donate
