Rough areas, minor debris and downed trees can occur at any time on any section of the trail due to weather variations. Staff and equipment could be encountered on the trail as cleanup or repairs are completed. All users should be alert to these possible conditions when on the trail and should never go around fenced off closures.
Area flooding also can affect the trail. For information about Missouri River levels and how they may impact the Katy Trail, visit the Potential Flood Locations page.
