Tuesdays on the Trail Tram Tours

at Katy Trail State Park

Out of caution, this program has been suspended for the year. Missouri State Parks is closely monitoring the progression of COVID-19 and its effect in Missouri. We’re sorry for any inconvenience; however, your safety is our top priority.​

The Tuesdays on the Trail program will utilize the tram provided by Missouri Parks Association to provide access to the trail to as many people as possible. Similar in nature to the Fall Colors Tram Tours held annually in October in Rocheport, the trips will highlight the natural and cultural history of certain sections of the trail while providing an opportunity to enjoy the trail for 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. Tours will be offered at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and will last two hours.

Each tour will host approximately 25 people. An interpretive guide with a PA system will provide a presentation on the history of the Katy Trail and give commentary on the local natural and cultural history along the trail. To avoid impacting regular trail users, the tours will take place during weekdays.  

Tour Times:
  • 10 a.m. - Noon
  • 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Following are the dates and locations for the tram tours. Due to high demand, registration for each tour will open one month prior to the tour date. For more information or to make a reservation for a tour, call 573-449-7422 Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
