Columbus People Trails
The Columbus People Trail circumvents the city of Columbus and is designed for hiking, biking and roller blades. It is divided into four segments.
West-side Asphalt Trail: 
This section of the Columbus People Trail runs from Goeller Boulevard  and Indiana State Road 46 under Interstate 65, then north through Mill Race and Noblitt Parks. The total length is approximately 3 miles. This section of the Columbus People Trail is easy to follow and includes several trails within the two parks.
North-side Trails: .
This section of the Columbus People Trail goes from Westenedge Park to airport area. It is mostly asphalt. The airport area has streets with generous sidewalks and asphalt sidepaths. The total length is approximately 2-3 miles. It is easy to travel, but the route may be difficult to follow.
Haw Creek North Trail:
This section of the Columbus People Trail goes from Rockyford Road to 25th Street which is about 2 miles. It is easy to follow. Crossing 25th Street to the south side of this trail section is not recommended as 25th Steet is very busy and motorists do not expect to see bicyclists.
Haw Creek South Trail: 
This section of the Columbus People Trail runs from Lincoln Park to the Cummins Plant at State Street a distance of about 3.5 miles. It is easy to follow. Crossing 25th Street to the north side of this trail section is a bit risky due to heavy traffic.
Visitors will find trailheads  at Noblitt Park, Millrace Park, Lincoln Park, and  Westenedge Park.
