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.

More than half of the eastern section of the trail follows the Missouri River; after leaving the river, the trail meanders through peaceful farmland and small-town Missouri.
Horseback riding is allowed on the 34.7-mile section between Calhoun and the Sedalia Fairgrounds; also on the 15.3-mile stretch between Tebbetts and Portland.
Motorized vehicles and equipment are prohibited. Electrically assisted, pedal-powered bicycles/tricycles (maximum speed of 20 mph), as well as electrically powered mobility devices for persons with disabilities, such as motorized wheelchairs and scooters, are allowed.
