Great trail. Well maintained. Busy close to MU. Lots of spur trails.
Starts in Downtown Columbia at Flat Branch Park and winds its way south to connect to the Katy Trail, linking just west of the McBaine Trailhead. A fun and flat ride that winds through grasslands, prairies, and over several bridges that cross multiple creeks. There are multiple entry points along the way, and a dog park with a pond.
