July ride

Hi, I am an avid Katy rider and I am looking to try ride the Cowboy this summer. How is the grade of this trail? Lot's of hills or is it more gradual like the Katy?
Also, is water pretty abundant?

It's fairly flat, since it was originally a railroad route. There is a slow staedy climb as you head west. Check out the elevation chart.

Grade is pretty much flat...no coasting ever, at least on the Norfolk to Atkinson stretch. Abundant water? Drinking...in each town. (about every 10 miles), otherwise it crosses the Elkhorn river a few times.
