Need advice about riding through Kansas
« on: July 13, 2018, 01:30:21 pm »
I am currently in Leoti, Kansas. I am planning on picking up the Katy Trail one Windsor, Missouri. I was thinking about leaving the Trans Am and going straight across to Windsor, instead of cutting south with the Trans Am. If I do that, am I missing out on the most beautiful part of Kansas???? I know there is the Prairie trail that starts in Iola and ends in Ottawa as well.... thoughts?????

Go for it, you really won't miss that much and in fact I personally think the "direct route" is slightly prettier than the original route.  Be sure to keep stocked up on water and food as small towns are loosing a lot of their food services.

How do you plan to reconnect to the TA, if you are planning on that, after you finish the Katy?
