Rocheport, MO - Katy Trail tunnel. The Katy Trail, the former route of the MKT railroad, is a scenic trail spanning the state from Machens, northeast of St. Charles, to Clinton, in the western portion of the state. Its flat surface winding along the Missouri River at times, through farmland and beside small towns make it a great trail to bike or hike.
Missouri: Katy Trail ~ Only minutes from my home, yet so many miles long. I really need to explore more of the trail.
