Missouri’s Katy Trail Trip Elevation Profile

Missouri’s Katy Trail is another prime example of generally flat, railroad-grade riding. However, certain areas of the trail contain slopes or elongated climbs.

Below is a sampling of the ride elevation profiles from each day of the tour.  This is a representative group– it may not include all ride options and it may not be the entire ride of each day. Keep in mind the scale of the image can distort both the steepness up and down of these rides.

Don’t be alarmed by sudden spikes in elevation gain – the GPS tracking cannot account for bridges and tunnels. On a bridge crossing, it reads down to the ground level. Same as a tunnel passing. Instead of reading to the tunnel surface, it reads to the ground level above the tunnel – thus looking like a sudden spike in elevation gain.
