The Atlanta BeltLine is a proposed 22-mile continuous trail around the city. The Eastside Trail is now open. The Atlanta BeltLine is a proposed 22-mile continuous trail circling Atlanta and connecting 45 in-town neighborhoods. Although the full 22 miles isn't built yet, you can still enjoy the BeltLine in sections. The city of Atlanta is very automobile focused, so to view it from a walking/biking path is an interesting perspective. Many of the neighborhoods the BeltLine connects are some of the most historic in the city and are not easy to navigate between via car. The BeltLine is still new and continuously improving, so expect to see something different each time you visit. The Atlanta BeltLine trails are paved and flat, perfect for the novice bike rider, or even a child on training wheels. Another great bonus for families, there are several playgrounds and interesting stops along the routes to keep kids engaged and entertained.

This is not really a joke, it’s more like a walkway that runs thru the heart of Atlanta. It connect to Piedmont Park and Ponce City Park. It’s winds through brewers, restaurants, parks and shops. People rent scoters and bikes. It’s worth your time for a city experience hike/walk.

Most incredible urban trail there is. The volume and speed of cyclists has gotten dangerous given the high pedestrian traffic. Would recommend in early mornings. You can venture north through the Park and up parallel to Ansley golf club (gravel trail) - this stretch is generally completely desolate.

My husband and I had a great time but I’m not sure if I would be so happy if I was a local. Extremely busy on a Saturday afternoon. You had to be careful as it allows walkers, bikers, and electric scooters that are for rent. People going all different speeds and dogs on long leashes. But there are many interesting spots to stop and have a drink, eat, or listen to music. It is a paved trail but we enjoyed being in the city while still walking a path.

Have been a regular on the beltline since it opened. Love to come here and stroll to different areas to eat, attend events, or meet with friends. Perfect for days when you don't want do any strenuous exercise.

It's a good trail, and I love the art and that it's dog friendly. I'm not a fan that it's paved and there aren't many dog- friendly restaurants along it.

Great trail but it gets PACKED when the weather is nice, especially on the weekends. Bikers abound. Stop at all of the shops and grab a snack or cocktail.
