Katy Trail in Autumn

Katy Trail Closures and Conditions – Fall 2020

Updated October 16, 2020

Fall is a prime time to traverse the Katy Trail. Last year during this time much of the trail was still closed due to historic flooding. 2020 has brought its own challenges but as far as trail conditions go, things are looking great and the entire trail is certainly passable with a bit of planning ahead.
