Columbus, Ohio is home to many walking trails, giving those who want to increase activity or maintain their weight a chance to get outdoors and see the sights. Most of these trails are paved, and some even loop around so that you come back to the start for an easy stroll.
If you would like to try something short, why not try out the one at Independence Village Park –it’s .2 of a mile long. Madison Mills Park has one that goes the same distance. Even if you don’t complete the loop, it’s a great place to get outside and take a walk.
Olentangy Parkland has a nature trail that runs for .25 of a mile, but be sure to wear good shoes there since it is mulched. Schiller Park is a great spot to begin as well since there are two options–the sidewalk around the park or an “inner loop” that you can check out.
Stoneridge Park has a loop that will take you through the woods and Antrim Park has some resting spots in the form of benches. This can be nice in case you need a little time off your feet after exploring. There are so many great opportunities for experiencing nature in Columbus–just try one and see!
