Crossroads Bike Tours is the #1 Tour on the Katy Trail. Due to our high volume of bookings, we are able to provide discounted rates on certain dates, which are listed under "View Dates". If these discounted dates don't meet your schedule then call into our office 314-656-6229 or send INQUIRY for dates that work for you. For start dates other than these listed days, the discount does not apply.
All tours travel West to East, check out our video why this is the best direction. We meet our guests in St. Charles, where you are 15 minutes from St. Louis Airport. We then shuttle you to your destination on the first day. If you are driving from the West, you may prefer to park your car and start in Clinton. This will save you over 7 hours of driving. Let us know you want to park in Clinton and we will adjust the tour accordingly. You will need to purchase an "Extra" "hotel after your tour" to spend the night in St. Charles and then the next day catch the 8am shuttle to Clinton. We can also get a room for you in Clinton the day before the tour - call or inquire for pricing.
All tours are available April through October for individuals to large groups.
Your self-guided tour includes your lodging, breakfast, transportation to the trailhead, trail map, t-shirt, and patch.

Below are the elevations (altitudes) for towns along the Katy Trail. As you can see, there is some variation in the western section, and then a gradual decline heading eastward from Boonville where the trail runs alongside the Missouri River. Thanks to Gary Irwin for providing this chart.
