Washington is not directly on the Katy Trail, but quite a few Katy travellers are drawn there
by its close location, its quaint shops and many other businesses, and a riverfront bike path.
Although the town is only 4 miles from the trail (closest to
it can only be reached by crossing a narrow bridge
across the Missouri River, which has no shoulder and no bike lanes.
If you have access to a car, we recommend driving over to visit this charming town.
If a bike is your only mode of transportation, you may want to see if one of the B&Bs there will
pick you up at the trail, if you spend the night as their guest.
Cycling across the bridge is not recommended.
