Description

Located in west-central Columbia, the Scott’s Branch Trail is a multi-use trail that travels through the heart of the Bonnie View Nature Sanctuary. The 1.3-mile paved trail winds through rolling farmland, with a wooded view of Scott’s Branch Creek from the boardwalk. Park users can venture out onto the 0.9-mile nature trail and experience creek crossings, big bur oak trees, and a paw paw grove. The trailhead at Bonnie View Nature Sanctuary provides a reservable pavilion, parking, restrooms and easy access to the 0.3 mile Prairie Education Trail. The Scott Boulevard pedway provides off-road access to the 8.9-mile MKT Trail.
