The Columbus Fall Line Trace runs between the 14th Street pedestrian bridge in Uptown and Psalmond Road Recreation Center in Midland. It follows an abandoned railroad right-of-way of the Norfolk Southern Railroad, paralleling Warm Springs Road. The trail joins the Chattahoochee Riverwalk
, and combined, the two trails can be linked for a 26-mile trek between Fort Benning and Columbus.
Some road crossings are busy so take care at intersections. You can access the trail from park-and-ride lots and also from where the trail intersects with METRA bus routes.
Parking for the Columbus Fall Line Trace is available at Midland Elementary and Middle schools, Flat Rock Park, Cooper Creek Park, Columbus State University campus, Hardaway High, and at park and ride lots near Hannan Magnet Academy on Warm Springs Road and on Manchester Expressway across from Legacy Chevrolet. In addition, you can access the trail just about anywhere it crosses a road and from the northern end of the Chattahoochee Riverwalk.
Easy, flat ride; great for kids and families. Parking area for this Trail that is across from Peachtree Mall has bikes for rent, restrooms and a playground.
Directions for getting onto the trail from my home were very poor. Took me all the way downtown instead of the nearest parking location to my home.
