are some websites you might find helpful for planning your own Katy
Katy Trail - www.bikekatytrail.com
This is the FIRST PLACE to start planning your trip. This website
is a fantastic resource.
Maps - http://maps.google.com
I use the satellite mapping to plan a lot of our bike routes. Satellite
shows service roads and offroad trails that won't show up on a regular
map. Just beware of the potential dangers of doing this. Satellite
maps didn't show that some of the roads on my intended route from
Warrensburg to Clinton were unrideable gravel.
Riding the Amtrak train was very nice and affordable too and we'll
probably do it again. But don't believe them when they tell you on
the phone that there are bike racks on the train!
Roundhouse Campground - www.katyroundhouse.com
think this is a nice place but we got in way after dark, it rained
on us and then we left early in the morning so we didn't give it a
fair shake. The restaurant closes during the off-season and note that
they are located at mile marker 189!!! Not 188 as it says on the Bike
Katy Trail website.
Landing - www.cooperslanding.net
This is an odd but very cool place. They've got live music there a
lot of nights and a nice cozy warm "Gathering Room" with
a big screen tv and free wifi! A Thai man cooks up some great Thai
food for the campers and they keep their beer cooler stocked. It's
also a neat location right on the bluff next to the river.
B&B - www.rendlemanhome.com
I can't say enough great things about this place. Doug Rendleman is
a wonderful host, fabulous cook and a really fun guy. He'll cook you
up a feast for dinner and breakfast with fresh food from his own garden.
Evenings you'll sit outside around the bonfire and enjoy the stars
and maybe even live music. He just started brewing his own beer too;
he's perfecting the recipe and I can tell you it's delicious. We met
Doug the first time we stayed there a couple of years ago and have
become friends. We just love him!

Fantastic campground. Very clean and very new. They pack up fast though
so make reservations!
