Columbus Fall Line Trace

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

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 and Trail Access

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.

I have used this trail many times. I do agree that there are too many busy intersections to cross. Some areas where the trail are located can be a bit sketchy. But overall the trail serves its purpose. read more
