About the Columbia Reservation
The 409 acre Columbia Reservation was opened in August of 2003. As a wetland reservation, Columbia hosts a number of ponds built around waterways near the west branch of the Rocky River. Primarily a wetland reservation, Columbia has 1 mile of paved trail, 2.5 miles crushed limestone, and .75 mile mowed unimproved trail. Although parts of the reservation are wooded, the park, in general, is characterized by open, scenic views of waterways and wildlife. The trails provide many views of the park including ponds, marsh, meadows, and woods. There are also several overlooks to enjoy these beautiful views.
