It’s all about the great outdoors with Katy Trail State Park! This piece of Missouri wilderness is actually one of the longest rail-to-trails in the entire USA!
Outdoors AND history – we have you covered there too! Some of the sections of the Katy Trail State Park are actually part of the Lewis & Clark Historic Trail (and we know you’ve heard of them!), as well as the American Discovery Trail.
The majority of the trail follows the beautiful northern bank of that iconic river known as the Missouri River, and is great for those families who LOVE a little outdoor activities!
Grab those running shoes and go for a hike, a jog or a walk with the family and just spend quality time with each other. If you have a bike or two then grab those as well! The trail is perfect for cycling along, breathing in that fresh Missouri air!
Want a challenge? Maybe you want to try and head across the ENTIRE trail! You certainly will be up for a challenge, because the trail takes 5 days to cycle across it (and will take you across most of the state!) There’s certainly enough on the trail to keep you entertained – from shady areas to relax and talk, to hiking through open fields, and exploring the charming communities along the way.
So if you and the family want to explore the great outdoors in the amazing state of Missouri, then the Katy Trail State Park might just be for you! Whether it’s an hour hike, or taking on that 5 day extravaganza, it’s certainly going to be a interesting family day out for you!
