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..
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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!!
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!
we got on at the bridge and rode south. trail was newly paved a had a variety of scenery. small town living, forests, abandoned factories, a crazy mix. enjoyed the day. never went to northern section of the trail
Smooth ride and uncrowded. No traffic. At one point it seems to end but you have to cross the road to catch the rest of the trail
A group of 6 semi aged men from St Marys GA recently ventured west to bike this and others in the area. This is a beautiful trail , well maintained (with a short construction detour presently). Kudos to the city of Columbus for putting a significant investment in the downtown part of the trail in particular. Good workout and plenty of watering holes in Columbus to reward yourself. Nice variety of environment I.e. riverside, urban, country side.
