Travel Tips for Columbia City

Blue River Trail

by MrWizard51

I have been here for 9 months and finally took the time to find the Blue River Trail. It was well worth the hunt. A convenient access point for the trail is located on the south side of the city. You will see a sign for the trail just past the first traffic light on SR 9 coming north into the city. Turn right just past the sign and you will find the access point where there is a nice parking area. The trail of course follows the river. It is asphalt paved and is in excellent condition. Along the way there are locations to stop and sit on a bench and just relax and view the river and trees. The trail is well shaded in most places and is therefore cooler in the hot weather. Rolling terrain and beautiful scenery provide for an excellent bike ride or walk. The paved trail ends at the far end of the city park. For the adventurous it continues on with grass at first and then a well worn trail. This portion of the trail is unpaved, but relatively smooth for biking. As near as I can tell, you can go all the way to US 30, but you will have to cut through an easement of a residential area to loop back to the trail access. This requires going through town. The ride is well worth your time.

Stop along US 30

by Toughluck

Most people see Columbia City as a strip mall along US 30. The main commerical district as in many small towns has moved from downtown to the main road through or near town. In this case, it's out on US 30. You'll find the chain stores, including Walmart, plus gas stations and a variety of restaurants. If you take the time, you can find a few interesting places in town or nearby to give you a feel for the history of the area.

History is often thought of as boring. And the way it is often taught, it really is boring. But, remember, your life is a part of history. Well, the history that will be written some years in the future. Think about how events have affected you. Did the recession leave you an affected? or did you lose your job? Was the property tax change in the state house nothing, or did you struggle to pay taxes for a few years? When you read about Indians being moved, or towns being settle, think about what that would mean if your were one of those involved. Now that's not boring history; it's a story, Yes, as Prof Tom Coakley once told me, its 'His' story (or Her story). We need to tell it that way.
