Columbus Fall Line Trace

Nice trail

November, 2016 by kicelis

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.

Columbus Fall Line Trace

I'm calling BS on these reviews!

October, 2016 by danjeffords

I've ridden over 1,000 miles on the River Walk and Fall Line Trace since May of 2016. I have never had one instance of feelin in danger. I'm 66 years old and have had nothing but great experiences. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Chattahoochee Riverwalk

Best part of Columbus

October, 2016 by danjeffords

Since May of 2016 I have ridden this trail at least 20 times.

There are several good entry points, but my favorite route is to park near Lake Oliver Marina and start at the very north end of the trail.

Your can ride several miles to the dam and then exit the Riverwalk briefly north of Bibb City. You will ride through a restored old neighborhood. Stay to the right at all turns, until you ride past the Event Center and storage warehouses. You will see the Riverwalk entry signs on your right. Turn right and follow the road down to the public park where rafters and kayakers put in the river. Follow the trail until it runs into 1st Ave. Turn right and ride about 200 hundred yards, then turn back onto the trail.

From there you can stay off public streets until south of downtown where you exit for a quarter mile onto Lumpkin Blvd. Turn right onto Lumpkin and then turn right into the Naval Museum and follow the trail back to the river. From there follow the trail past South Columbus Water Works to the Oxbow Creek golf course. Turn right just before the golf course.

Follow the bike path past the environmental center and cross S. Lumpkin Ave. The trail is clearly marked until you get to the construction site north of Upatoi Creek. Turn left just before the road construction and pay attention to the markings where the trail crosses the streets. The trail runs through forested areas until you get to the older section of Ft Benning. I enjoy riding out around the airfield and back to the trail starting point at Baltzell Ave.

If you ride around the airfield and back to Lake Oliver the total ride is around 42 miles. Very few climbs, lots of walkers, joggers, and riders on the weekends. There are lots of opportunities to hammer down, but stretches where you need to relax and sit up. Map your course on Google before you go. I love it. You will too.

Columbus Fall Line Trace

mixed review

October, 2016 by fuegofogo

very nice and good workout if you head west from Cooper Creek Tennis Center. however heading east there are too many road crossings, very bad signage. The trail goes through an impoverished area that appears to be dangerous with many boarded houses and businesses.

Columbus Fall Line Trace

14.75 miles round trip

July, 2016 by goldwingers

My son and I started riding at the Columbus Bike Shop (which is located on the trail) and rode the trail North all the way to the North parking lot at the other end. A neat long bridge over I185 and several more bridges along the way. All very scenic. There are a few streets to cross before you get to the long runs but love the 'press the button' and traffic stops immediately when there is a street to cross. Thats a nice feature. This is a smooth paved ride with gradual up hill, down hill grades. Some long straightaways for max speed if needed. From the bike shop to the end and back is 14.75 miles.

Did not do the 'thru Columbus' part of the trail as its mixed with lots of 'to much city and vehicle traffic'. We relocated the bikes to ride the trail along the river. It starts downtown on the East side of the Chatahoochee. Very scenic and nicely done. Lots of gradual uphills going North along the river. The ride is scenic with grand views of the river and rock formations. Am planning on doing the trail South along the river to Fort Benning another day and will report on that ride soon.

Riverfront Greenway Trail

Love it!

July, 2016 by pattihowell2001

This was a well maintained, safe, and scenic trail. It is paved with concrete; wide enough for plenty of people. The day I walked, it was only me. There are also dirt trails coming off the concrete path. They are safe, easy to walk. Although the concrete trail is about 2.4 miles, I made a 7.4 mile walk by taking some of the extra dirt paths, the loop, and walking back to my starting point (instead of getting picked up at the end of the trail.)

There are places to sit, pic nic, and fish.

Chattahoochee Riverwalk

Nice Trail

July, 2016 by rjbaptist

Parked at the civil war naval museum and entered the trail there. Path is well paved and mostly level. Plenty of places to stop along the way. Overall a nice 'Sunday Stroll' trail. Recommended!

Chattahoochee Riverwalk

Beautiful trail for all ages and riding levels

May, 2016 by sharonstich

This is a beautiful, safe, clean, easy trail that is suitable for all ages. It is partly shaded and therefore a pleasant ride even in the summer. You can combine the bike riding with other activities such as rafting or zip lining and end your day with a wonderful meal at a wide variety of restaurants close by.

Columbus Fall Line Trace

Road FL Trace from start to finish today.

May, 2016 by cmr287

Today I rode full line trays for the first time from start to finish. As much of a great ride as it was and beautiful scenery, it was hard to find parts of the trail as to where they cut off go into the city of Columbus and start back up. If you're not familiar with this trail it is pretty hard to navigate. There needs to be clear signs that point to where the trails are and that way writers runners and walkers using the trails have a better understanding of where these things are located.

Columbus Fall Line Trace

Poor to Average

April, 2016 by dan.sagan52

Have ridden many trails across Florida and Georgia and find this one poor to average. Way too many street and highway crossings. Hard to keep a steady pace and get a good workout when you have to slow down or stop at every turn. Also much of the trail runs through commercial/industrial areas as well as the seedier parts of Columbus. On a scale of 1-10 I'd rate it a 3.
