My husband and I took our 14-year-old son on our biking adventure, starting in Clinton and arriving back in St. Charles 6 days later. It was a fabulous family time! The trail is so well maintained and SAFE.

Katy Trail is a great place to bike, hike or take a walk. Trails are for the most part, flat and easy to navigate.

This was the perfect spot for a friend or family outing. Riding bikes is the best along with hiking on the trails. The historic area is a perfect spot for shopping.

Unless you have several days to ride, this is an out-and-back walk or ride on the trail. It's well-maintained, so no tree branches hit you in the face. Bridges are sturdy; surface is crushed limestone or dirt. Going northeast on the trail, from Hwy 364...More

They keep expanding this trail. At this time it is over 200 miles long. There are lots of B and B's at small towns along the trail. I think the best in the fall when the leaves are changing. Be sure and check out St....More

In St. Charles, you can rent bikes at the Bike Stop Cafe. You can also rent bikes in Defiance. There are also places in other towns. Where are you starting from?

The trailheads always have maps. Get one at St. Charles at the bike shop on the trail.

There are several places along this route. Especially off Main Street. If you travel west during the summer there is a fresh produce store that serves food also.
