Boonville Closure

August 11th, 2019

Waters have receded on the majority of the Katy Trail, however, trail conditions are still poor in areas that experienced flooding over the past several months.

Based on the damage caused by the comparable flood of 1993, Missouri State Parks staff expects to find holes, washouts, bridge damage, downed trees, debris, silt accumulation and inconsistent trail surfacing along the stretches of the trail that closely follow the river.
