Chattahoochee Valley Railroad Trail

Confusion

September, 2021 by vpdn5yq96s

This was hard to find and harder to find the start. No maps of the trail were posted where I parked (somewhere near 22nd). I was a bit sketched on leaving my car unattended as some rando in a pedo van was sitting there (left when I got out). Anyways, I made it 1.3 and had no clue where to go but back. Judging by the money spent on the city hall, I’m sure they could use some to pick the trash up along the trail. I wouldn’t recommend this trail without figuring the whole trail out.

Chattahoochee Valley Railroad Trail

A series of trails¿

September, 2021 by vpdn5yq96s

Took a while to figure this trail(s?). It seems that it’s broken in sections with no parking area really identified. The one I did find was a bit shifty (off 22nd st). Some rando in a pedo can was just sitting there. I couldn’t figure out why there’s trash all along the trail. Judging by the amount of money put into the trail and the city hall, you’d think it’d be clean. The section I did run was 1.3. Also, no trail map at the beginning or my end (it was an end point).

Columbus Fall Line Trace

Great Family Ride on the Dragonfly

July, 2021 by kz1906

This trail is also appropriately called the Dragonfly Trail.. Our ride started off a bit shaky as we were looking for clear markers of where the Columbus Fall Line Trace intersected with the Chattahoochee Riverwalk. After asking a few locals who kept mentioning he Dragonfly Trail, we finally realized that the Columbus Fall Line Trace and Dragonfly Trail are one in the same. From there we were able to locate the starting point near the Pedestrian Bridge on 14th street. The trail has convenient (green) path markings on the ground and addition signs on street lights/posts which includes mile markers. The trail was not very busy which made our ride much more enjoyable as we didn’t have to dodge people or pets.. It crossed several busy streets at the beginning however each crossing had pedestrian light buttons and clear marking on the ground. Once we got past the downtown area around 6th street and Piedmont Hospital the trail was more quiet and wooded. There is another busy section around Columbus State University but again the street lights are very helpful. The rest of the trail up to Flat Rock Park was a great and peaceful ride. We didn’t go all the way to the end but will plan to include the last 2 miles on our next trip..

Chattahoochee Valley Railroad Trail

Nice Trail & Nice Ride

May, 2021 by stephenjohnson713

This was our first experience with this trail. I like that it's been newly paved. Not a huge amount of scenery on this trail but nice blend of small Alabama town and woods. I wish there was better signage. We got slightly confused with the 4-lane crossing because the trail just abruptly ends and you can't visibly see where it starts across the Hwy 29 4-lane. Mostly level trail. I was hoping the trail would take you down to the Chattahoochee River but it just abruptly stops once again. Would be nice if they could somehow incorporate the trail with the river. But overall, a nice ride and nice trail.

Chattahoochee Valley Railroad Trail

just okay

March, 2021 by megtramel

I guess I expected much more... The trail was a little confusing to follow and we wound up on a main road for half a mile. We found the correct place to cross on the way back and we’re able to avoid riding on the road other than crossing streets. There is one section going through a wooded area that was very nice.

Yoholo Micco, The Creek Indian Trail

good exercise!

March, 2021 by 3ff8cfytxu

The hubby and I went here last Saturday and it was so much fun! We didn’t have time to walk the side trails but, we enjoyed it! I’m not in the best shape in the world but, I easily did this. Well, I say easily but, the last hill on the way up was a doozy.

Man O' War Railroad Recreation Trail

Great trail for begins

The MOW Trail is a great trail for the beginner cyclists with easy access linking Downtown Pine Mountain shops & restaurants to the beauty of FDR State Park & Callaway Gardens.

Columbus Fall Line Trace

Inline Skate Friendly

October, 2020 by gramsey_92

I skate this trail regularly and I also run it. It’s great for both. It’s nearly flat the entire route which is awesome for a nice fitness skate session. There’s also steady foot traffic and bikers, even in the more remote areas, so one won’t feel too isolated. That matters to me as a woman. I park at Flat Rock Park and from there, you have immediate access. As for skating, the pavement is excellent. Little to no roots or cracks and generous width. Just be mindful of the change in texture on bridges, road crossing entrances and the leaf litter and walnuts in the fall. Lol

Chattahoochee Riverwalk

Great Ride

September, 2020 by eitys3ibpz

Bought new bikes from Ride on Bikes in Columbus and then rode the trail the following morning. (8/22/20) It was truly the most fun my wife has had on a trail to date. The trail was really nice and filled with people biking, running, and walking. Hope to go back again when the infantry museum opens back up

Chattahoochee Valley Railroad Trail

rode full trail. north to south

August, 2020 by gibbs20

Parked at an old farmers market at the very north end of the trail. Rode both spurs on the south end to their ends and back 11 miles TOTAL, so 5.5 miles of trail not 7. Fresh, smooth asphalt about 40/60 shaded/sun. Nice ride, nothing special.

Chattahoochee Valley Railroad Trail

the whole trail has been newly paved!

August, 2020 by rbjlogan

So excited that this quaint little trail in valley, Alabama has been completely repaved. While you have to cross a large road for part of it(albeit only a mile and a half) it’s been greatly improved. I would suggest parking at the Langdale Mill site instead of the trail head off of 35th st. Much more visible and more traffic. So come ride this sweet little trail!!

Columbus Fall Line Trace

Flat, mostly shaded ride.

August, 2020 by melissalynnburlin

This is such a hidden gem! Just 15 mins from our new home in Columbus, the trail is clean, quiet and well kept. We rode an out and back from Psalmond Road, about 10 miles total. Had a decent amount of shade and the road was flat, for the most part. I can’t wait to come back and do the entire trail!
