My husband and I are going on the June trip. We live in NH. Would like to know other people going on this and where you are from.

Looking for a roommate for the 10/11 trip.

Anyone interested in knowing more about the Katy Trail will enjoy "The Complete Katy Trail Guidebook" by Brett Dufur. Brett live in Rocheport, and writes about the trail and all the towns and points of interest along its length. You will probably find it in your local library.

So? Anyone have any good tips for this trip?
Wayne Byrd Sep 30, 2013 at 10:31 PM

Weather is very changeable. Highs this week in 80's; early next week in 60's. Dress in layers.

Can't car pool from Sacramento but if you are on the 10/5 trip I'll see you there!

I am considering the October trip with my wife. I am interested in hearing from anyone who has done this trip.

I've talked to folks who have done the trip in the past...they LOVED it!! We are going 10/5-10/12. BJ

My wife Anne and I have ridden bits and pieces of the Katy, but never almost the full length. I'm impressed with how Road Scholar has laid out the trip; mileages, accommodations, logistics, etc. If the weather cooperates, it should be great fun.

Edwin Brawley Mar 27, 2013 at 06:13 PM

Is anyone else going?
Doug Gordon Apr 01, 2013 at 07:15 PM

I'm on the May trip. Hoping to hear soon with more details about the schedule, etc.
