BOONVILLE, Mo. – Flooding along the Missouri River has prompted the cancellation of this year’s Katy Trail Ride, which was scheduled for June 17-21.

Missouri State Parks and the Missouri State Park Foundation said in a news release that about 100 miles of the Katy Trail State Park between Boonville and St. Charles is closed because of flooding.

The Missouri River is expected to crest at near record levels early next week and it could be several weeks before the water recedes from the trail.

The annual five-day ride covers 240 miles and attracts hundreds of riders.
