Program #12693ENZ
8 Days | 7 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Bike along the Missouri River and through dense forest, prairies, rolling farmland and wetlands as you cover up to 188 miles of the 240-mile Katy Trail, America's longest “rails-to-trails” project. A protected state park, the Katy Trail follows 240 miles of the former Missouri- Kansas- Texas (MKT) Railroad Corridor from St. Charles to Clinton. Enjoy expert-led educational sessions on the fascinating history that surrounds this storied trail.


Highlights

• Bike along the scenic Katy Trail — often with the Missouri River on one side and bluffs on the other.
• Learn about MKT Railroad history, the Missouri River and the journey of Lewis and Clark.
• Visit three of Missouri's finest wineries and explore the culture of the midwest in towns along the trail.

Activity Notes

Bicycling 26-51 miles per day. Generally flat terrain.
