Bike Paths:

park-bike-pathsAccording to the Columbus Planning Department, the newly named Columbus Fall Line Trace, part of the City’s Rails-to-Trails project, was constructed on an abandoned railroad route. The Trail begins at the 14th Street Pedestrian Bridge and ends at Psalmond Road. The land was purchased by the Columbus Consolidated Government from Norfolk Southern Railroad. The project provides a 12-foot wide asphalt trail that includes two park and ride/rest areas (one near Hannan Magnet Academy and one across from Legacy Chevrolet). The project also involves improvements to several bridges, including the railroad bridge that crosses over I-185; and various hard scape and landscape improvements, such as benches, trash receptacles, and signage. Residents will be able to access the trail at parks, numerous road crossings, and trail spur connectors.
