Katy Trail: Weldon Spring to Matson Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Katy Trail is the longest developed rail-trail in the United States. Running from Clinton to Machens, Missouri, the 240-mile trail stretches across almost the entire width of the state and is popular with runners, hikers, and bikers alike.

The portion of trail between the Weldon Spring and Matson trailheads is a particularly beautiful stretch and makes a fine day hike and a short trip from St. Louis. Plan for a stop in the town of Defiance, a popular destination for lunch or ice cream."
