Man O' War Railroad Recreation Trail

Not complete.

October, 2021 by djracer201

10/16/2021 The trail runs through the town and behind Callaway Gardens, but abruptly stops at a fence before the old railroad crossing over the highway. It looks complete, but wondering why it's still blocked off. The other side at the country store I believe snakes down to the rail alignment, but it's blocked as well. It's good till that point. The county has a website stating the whole trail fr town to country store is open.

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.

Reeves Creek Trail

Wonderful Short Trail Ride

May, 2021 by sopalexa74

My sister and I just started what we like to call Cycling Sundays to just get out of the house, get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors. I downloaded the TrailLink app and have absolutely loved it. We found this Trail on it and decided to try it out. A lot of the older reviews made me a little weary, especially the ones regarding the safety of the bridges. I am here to reassure everyone that those wooden bridges are no more, they were replaced with metal bridges. All in all we loved the scenery and hope that the other end of the Trail opens back up soon.

Best time of day to use path

April, 2021 by lynnmeloche

As a long time resident, I have learned the best time to use the path is BEFORE school lets out and after a typical work rush hour. (Before 4:00 PM and after 6:00 PM weekdays) Reason? This is a golf cart community where many teens and adults use the path to commute. And unfortunately, they use it like the German Autobahn. Also, wear something bright, because the woods surrounding the path system are thick and there are some blind corners. Otherwise, HAVE FUN!

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.

Reeves Creek Trail

We enjoyed our bike ride with our young daughter just learning to ride. Although the holes in the bridges are pretty gnarly for training wheels and half of the path is closed.
