At 239.5 miles long, Katy Trail State Park spans nearly the full width of Missouri.
It is the country’s longest continuous rail-trail, intersecting with rural farmland, scenic small towns, and centers of commerce and government on its route paralleling the Missouri River.
It stretches from Clinton, Missouri eastward to Machens, Missouri. Along the way, it invites its walkers, runners, and riders on a journey to explore the history of the state.
Because the trail is converted from old railway lines that ended in 1986, it is relatively flat and great for any level of biking, from novice to advanced. It is well known to avid cyclists who tour the entire length of the trail, staying at trail friendly destinations like Hotel Frederick along the way.
The Katy is also perfect for daily outings for families, groups, and tourists. Bike rentals are available at Hotel Frederick so you can ride the trail in style and comfort!
