Tuesdays on the Trail: St. Charles to Machens

5/9/2023 | Katy Trail State Park

See Katy Trail State Park on a tram tour! Senior citizens can experience Katy Trail State Park from the comfort of a tram coach on the Tuesdays on the Trail tours, a series of tours at various locations along the trail. The tram tours are round trip and last about two hours. A variety of routes offer visitors a chance to see stretches of the trail they may not be able to experience otherwise.

The May 9 tours will take visitors from St. Charles to Machens and back. There will be a morning tour and an afternoon tour, each hosting approximately 50 people. An interpretive guide with a PA system will give a presentation on the history of the Katy Trail and provide commentary on natural and cultural features along the way. Snacks and bottled water will be offered to each participant.

Tours are free, but space is limited. Reservations for the May 9 tours open on April 4. To reserve your seat, contact the park office at 573-449-7402 or visit our reservation page.
