The GM&O Heritage Trail maintains the legacy of the railroad that once ran through the municipality of Columbia. The right-of-way was first built by the Cairo & St. Louis Railroad, which by another railroad, which in one iteration was known as the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio Railroad. The railroad changed hands several times before the line fell into disuse and was converted into a walking and biking trail.
The asphalt trail currently extends over a mile-and-a-half, and it is envisioned to be double that length when complete. Walking, bike riding and other non-motorized uses are welcome on the trail.
