I was pleasantly surprised by this section of the Katy Trail. I’ve never been on it any other time of year; however, this time of year, it was gorgeous! There was quite a few areas of trees crossing the trail that would provide shade during the summer. The pastures next to the trail were very scenic and that is basically the landscape, pastures.
The down side is from Clinton to Calhoun is along side a busy highway. Its not very peaceful but once you get to Calhoun, you leave the highway and its very scenic and peaceful.
It does have a good grade and it feels uphill going both directions but a person in good shape should have no problems at all.
