The Katy Trail is a beautiful 34 mile bike ride, 17 miles each way, from my driveway to Les Bourgeois Winery on the bluffs overlooking the Missouri River is pure bliss. It exudes great greenery, flowers, rocks, caves, streams, and many other wonders of nature. Riding down the trail, you will see families, groups of young people, runners, walkers, people walking their dogs, and everything peaceful.
It is a great attraction to those moving to Columbia and the surrounding area, offering entertainment and family involvement, great workouts, and a nice afternoon having a glass of wine at the winery when you're finished riding; or in our case, a break in the middle. Columbia has many entrances to the trail, and whatever the neighborhood, you will have the option for that enjoyment.
