Itinerary

Day 1Travel Day : Arrive by car in Rocheport

Start your Katy Trail experience in the middle of the trail. Park your car in Rocheport while you cycle. Spend a night at a lovely Rocheport B&B. Explore the local winery or antique shops. Jump on the Katy and ride west for a while. If time allows, hop on the trail and cycling west through the only tunnel on the trail, that is the Rocheport Tunnel. Whether by bike or foot it’s very short distance from your B&B (less than ½ mile)

Lodging: B&B at Rocheport

Day 2Cycling Day: 37 miles - Rocheport to Jefferson City

Leave luggage with your host. We will transfer it for you to this evening’s destination, and each day on your tour. IF able, please take some light clothes along. Rare as it is, situations may arise of late afternoon luggage arrival. Note: B&B check-ins are usually 3:30/4:00pm. If arriving sooner, please call ahead. Our lodgings are very accommodating but many of our host do their fresh food shopping in the afternoons. Or take advantage of our no bags transfer discount.
Leaving Rocheport, you cycle beneath towering limestone bluffs among the highest on the trail. The Missouri River can be seen frequently during the day. Your destination is N. Jefferson trailhead (MM 143.2) and if you’re high mileage cyclers, a few optional miles on the MKT Spur Trail is available. This spur off the Katy is located at Hindman Junction (MM 169.9) It’s approx., 9 miles one way into Columbia. Arriving at the N Jefferson TH at MM 143.2, it’s approx. 2 miles to the nights lodging and the Jefferson City Katy Spur will direct you there, and the including crossing the Missouri River on a fully separate bike lane. With a couple of bridge over looks, you’ll encounter great views of Jefferson City, MO, that is the Capitol of Missouri. Once a bustling town with stage coach, riverboat and rail traffic, it is the first city in the country named in honor of President Thomas Jefferson. A good spot to add an extra night’s stay if so inclined.

Lodging: Hotel at Jefferson City (on site laundry service is available)

Day 3Cycling Day: 46 miles - Jefferson City to Hermann

With a second ride over the bridge, the cycling adventure continues onto Hermann, MO. Most of this cycling day includes short sporadic bluffs with sections of forest on your left, and wide open river bottoms on the right, as the Missouri River meanders seldom to the trail. This section also includes rural landscapes and several small towns of historic note as early railroad towns. As we reach Portland the Missouri River is in sight as you cycle just past Bluffton and the Grand Bluffs Conservation Area. At McKittrick (MM 100.8) cross the Missouri River Bridge with its protected bike path into Hermann for your evening lodging. This bridge is bicycle safe and friendly. The winery town of Hermann has much to offer including antique shops and several wine tasting rooms and restaurants. Crossing the river into Hermann, your lodging is getting close. Hermann is our number one town for adding an extra day. If taking a day off the bike, visit wineries, brewery’s, shops and more as you take in this historic town. The option of finishing in Rhineland (lodging right on the trail) will cut this cycling day by 7 miles. Our Rhineland B&B host will shuttle and drop you off in Hermann for a few hours (10-minute drive away)

Lodging: B&B at Hermann – Optional B&B on the trail in Rhineland (shortens daily mileage by 7 miles)

Day 4Cycling Day: 37 miles - Hermann to Augusta

From Hermann, back on the trail (1.5 miles), the McKittrick TH is basically the Katy Trail cycling start of the day. Traveling through many small rail towns, this section touches the Missouri River for approx. 4 miles earlier in the day. Mostly cycling with wide open views, the geological setting gives an understanding of the immensity of one of our great American Water Ways. Finishing the day in Augusta.

Lodging: B&B’s at Augusta

Day 5Return to Rocheport

This morning our shuttle will take you back to Rocheport where you left your car (about 1 ½ hours) and the end of your Missouri bike trails tour.
Excellent B&B lodging, and great hotels, will leave you relaxed and ready to cycle each day. With an experienced support crew, there are no worries of break downs or weather related setbacks, we will assist with comfort and efficiency.
