Dr. Alpha Omega Campbell Connector Heritage Trail and Shared Use Path Description

The Dr. Alpha Omega Campbell Connector Heritage Trail and Shared Use Path is a paved, two-lane path that zig-zags through south Tallahassee. The trail links the Jack McLean Jr. Park & Community Center, Capital Park and the Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail. But the Campbell Connector doesn't just connect places; it also connects people to their history. It is named for a prominent doctor, one of the first Black physicians in Tallahassee, who owned most of the land that the trail runs through. In fact, some streets in the area are named for his relatives - Zillah, Alpha Omega, Mizell and Gaile.

The trail makes its shady debut in Jack McLean Park and cuts from the north end to the south. Outside of the park, a wooden gateway marks the start of the trail near the corner of Paul Russell Road and Zillah Street. Interpretive signage at this and at other points along the way briefly narrates the stories of Dr. Campbell and his family. The trail runs through a residential section of the city giving neighbors a safe place to walk, bike or meet. Much, though not all, of it is shaded against the Florida sunshine, and greenery abounds. Its route looks like a staircase when viewed on a map - south on Zillah, west on Omega Avenue, south on Cornelia Street, west adjacent to Lindgren Ave., south on Meridian St. and finally west on Galle Ave. to the St. Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Trail, which stretches over 20 miles.
