Fall colors are expected to peak in the next week, and GetAbout Columbia, in partnership with Columbia Parks and Recreation, is offering a free Fall Colors Trail Ride to Rocheport. The 26-mile (roundtrip) trail ride will be on Saturday, October 19 starting at 10:00 a.m. at the Scott Boulevard MKT Trailhead, 3662 S. Scott Blvd.
Riders will travel along the Boone County portion of the MKT Trail which meets up with the cross-state Katy Trail - the nation's longest developed rail trail. Cyclists will ride along the most scenic section of the trail known for its fall colors, majestic buffs and striking views of the Missouri River. After a short stop for lunch at the Mulberry Grill and Bakery in Rocheport, cyclists will return along the same route.
On-trail ride support will be available for minor maintenance needs. Participants should bring a spare inner-tube and water bottle. All riders are required to wear a helmet. To register for the ride, call 874-7460. Children must be accompanied by a registered adult.
