The Tuesdays on the Trail program at Katy Trail State Park will utilize the tram provided by the 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 two Tuesdays in the months of May, June, September and October for a total of eight 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 about the history of the Katy Trail and commentary on the local natural and cultural history along the trail. Snacks and bottled water will be provided to each participant. To avoid impacting regular trail users, the tours will take place during weekdays.
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. Tours are free, but space is limited. To reserve your seat, call the park office at 573-449-7402 or visit our reservation page.
