Our Country Store Corridor is a 3.5-mile stretch on the Katy Trail between Peers and Treloar, MO, providing a focal point for Magnificent Missouri’s conservation efforts.

The Country Store Corridor experience consists of:

  • Box Lunch on the Porch at Historic Peers Store
  • Presentation on German Heritage
  • Presentation on the history of the MKT Railroad and conversion to the Katy Trail
  • The Case for Conservation - Magnificent Missouri Executive Director, Ralph Pfremmer

  • Your choice of bike-tour or shuttle tour to the historic Treloar Mercantile and back to Peers (6 miles round trip supported)


About Peers Store- From the live local music on the porch, to our 4-acre Peers Prairie (our butterfly pollinator plot across the street), and the Katy Trail itself, the Peers Store (now listed on the National Register of Historic Places) continues to hold a special place in the history of the Missouri River valley and is truly a gem in the heart of the Missouri countryside.


About Treloar Mercantile- At over 100 years old, this historic building was built in 1896 to welcome the new KATY Railroad. At KLT, we are preserving the building and will use it for special events to promote conservation along the Trail and the not-for-profit work of the Katy Land Trust.
