Visit Boonville and Enjoy the Ride!

Boonville is a vibrant town on the Katy Trail that has built an identity around being friendly to cyclists and trail users. Boonville is a historic Missouri community on the banks of the MIssouri River with much to offer the visitor. We will see how the city has connected the community to the Katy Trail and built the trail into and economic anchor.


Conveniently located right off I-70 in the heart of the state, almost half-way between Kansas City and St. Louis, Boonville has a lively, stimulating cultural scene combined with small-town charm and hospitality.

BikeMO Saturday . . .
