Clinton Mo to Pittsburgh, KS
« on: August 29, 2014, 06:19:37 pm »
I am riding the Katy Trail westward.  Please let me me know if you have a route to connect the Katy (at Clinton, Mo) with the TransAmerican ACA route, likely at or near Pittsburg, KS..
Thanks, ben

Most seem to take 18 west and make their way on to the transam. I took 18 until the Kansas border where it turns to gravel after a steep hill. Was not bad riding the gravel, quite scenic in fact. Rode to 69 and then south. Busy but nice shoulder. I left 69 where Kansas 52 heads west through Mound City (nice little cafe on way out of town). Using 52, 31 and 3 made my way to Iola. Picked the TA up in Eureka.

Thank you RR..I was thinking of joining the TA at Pittsburg KS, your recommendation looks to improve on that.  I am not a fast Rider, 70 miles is a long day for me.  Were you able to find towns (water) along this part of the route?

I did not have any problems relative to water.
