Missouri Rock Island Trail update

Yesterday officials from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and Ameren signed an "interim trail use agreement" that allows the 144 miles of the Rock Island railroad corridor between Windsor and Beaufort to move towards development as Rock Island Trail State Park in the near future.

The agreement today railbanks the 144-mile section of the corridor and puts it on track for trail development within two years--if all goes well.

I have a section of this near my apt in KC. Is there a good map of the whole trail system somewhere. It seems to just end in Lee's summit

Cool, the map still isn't updated for around my house. It's labeled as the Rock Island Trail and goes southwest into Lee's summit mo. I'm gonna have to start out and head east it looks like.
