Tuesdays on the Trail

10/2/2018 | Katy Trail State Park

Take a tram ride on Katy Trail State Park from St. Charles to Machens! This trip will highlight the natural and cultural history of this section of the trail while providing the opportunity to enjoy the trail to visitors who might otherwise not have the ability to do so.

Tours are planned for the first Tuesday of each month in April, May, June, September and October for a total of five tour dates. (July and August are not scheduled due to extremely warm temperatures and dusty trail conditions.) The tours are part of Missouri State Parks’ Seniors to State Parks initiative with funding for the tram provided by the Missouri Parks Association.

Each tour will host approximately 25 people.  An interpretive guide will provide a presentation on the history of the Katy Trail and commentary on the local natural and cultural history along the trail.
