Columbus residents can now safely bike from northwest Columbus to the Riverwalk.
The Fall Line Trace trail of the Dragonfly Trails is now connected to the 14th Street pedestrian bridge and the Chattahoochee Riverwalk.
Mayor Teresa Tomlinson spoke at the ceremony on the importance of connecting the city.
“You can come here and as part of a tourist experience, you can come down to the river and spend the whole weekend cycling,” Tomlinson said. “Or as us citizens, cycle to work, cycle to the park, go grab some groceries, put them in your basket and come down to market days. That’s what this city is going to be like.”
The trail system currently includes over 30 miles of trails with over 30 more planned for the coming years.
Dragonfly Trails received it’s namesake because dragonflies live near clean and abundant water.
