Construction of the Trail System Master Plan
The Standing Boy Property consists of over 1,500 acres of natural, rolling hills located in northwest Columbus. It is bordered on the south by the Green Island Hills neighborhood and the west by the Chattahoochee River / Lake Oliver.
Over the past years, a team of volunteers (now formalized as Standing Boy, Inc.) has raised private dollars from our community and begun the construction of a unique and high-quality trail system for hikers, runners, and bikers. We hope you'll come check out the trails!
Before you come, please take the time to look over the map, user's guide, and other information under the "Trails" drop-down menu. The trails are closed when they are so wet that normal levels of use would damage them, and we don't want you to show up to find them (and the gate to parking area) closed.
Under "The Plan," you'll find information on the Trails Master Plan (i.e., what has not yet been constructed) as well as the Trailhead Master Plan.
Under "Advocacy," you'll find information on some very basic things you can do to help out. You can also see who is supporting our efforts in general as well as who has made larger financial donations.
Under "Donate," you'll find information on where we are in our efforts to raise the dollars needed to finish the construction of the trails and how you can donate. We have a matching grant of $100,000, so that every dollar we raise will be matched up to $100,000. Please help us!
Under "Dreaming Big," you'll find some articles and links that demonstrate the impact that an exceptional trail system can have a southeastern community like ours.
Normal Trail Hours: 5:00AM TO 9:00PM
