The Columbus, Indiana People Trail System is available for all types of people powered transportation. It is an ever evolving system with a final goal of connecting our citizens and guests of our city, to key destinations throughout our community. The overall goal for future expansion of our trail system is to bring a bicycle or pedestrian facility connection within 3 blocks of 90 percent of our residents. Your participation in the Tour de Trails event(s) provides needed funds for maintenance. We thank you for joining us in this exciting and growing event!
