This site was noted in William Clark’s journal in 1804. A half-mile trail takes visitors up a hill, past American Indian burial mounds and interpretive panels, to an overlook of the Missouri and Osage rivers. The historic site is managed out of Rock Bridge Memorial State Park. Located off Route 50, north on Route J.
This site is comprised of buildings dating to the mid-1800s, when the landing was the area's center of river trade.
Open March thru Labor Day.
Katy Trail State Park is the longest rails-to-trails conversion in the U.S. The flat, 237.7-mile trail is open for hiking, running, walking, and bicycling through Missouri countryside.
