Katy Trail State Park Offers Tram Tours for Seniors

JEFFERSON CITY  – Missouri State Parks is offering senior citizens an experience at Katy Trail State Park from the comfort of a tram coach during Tuesdays on the Trail tours. The tours are part of Missouri State Parks’ Seniors to Parks initiative, with funding for the tram provided by the Missouri Parks Association. The free tours will be offered at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and last around two hours each. Space is limited and reservations are required.

The tram tours will run between different Katy Trail trailheads on the first Tuesday of each month in the spring and again in the fall. As riders enjoy the scenery of Katy Trail State Park from the open tram cars, interpretive guides will explain the natural history and cultural features along the way.
