The People trails are one of the better attractions and assets of Columbus. The trails make walking, biking, running, skating, safe for those that use the trail. One of the best things in town. Columbus takes pride in their trail and it's well-deserved!

I used to run there. They have been recently expanded. Trail is kept nice and clean. You meet many friendly people out for exercise or just a walk

I love the people trails here. The trails seldom cross automotive paths, often pass through parks, woods, neighborhoods and are well maintained and lighted. If you're looking for an activity to get you outside and enjoying life, I highly recommend the trains. They're great.

The people trails are so convenient when looking for somewhere to run, walk or go bike riding! Not crowded.

We biked Columbus for 3 hours and used the People Trails for probably 1/3 of that time. They usually weren't very crowded and some of them went through parks and along the riverbanks. The town has an extensive biking trail system, also, which often interconnects...More

Signage would go a long way here. Columbus is a beautiful town. I downloaded the map (pdf) - but not easy to look at that while you're riding bikes. Just a little signage would help so much!
