We walked this trail yesterday. It is mostly on the sidewalk around the golf course, but because of Covid19, they have opened up the golf course to pedestrians. Dogs must be on leash and no walking on the greens. The restrooms were also open, (which is a real plus) over near the playground, which was still closed. We stuck to the shady areas when possible, and cut through the golf course, following the shade on the way back to the car. The trail on the map above was exactly what we did clockwise except for a detour to the restrooms. many people were having picnics on the golf course or playing frisbee or walking on the golf course. It was a pleasant day and such a nice thing for the city to open up the golf course to allow easy social distancing. We recorded 2.9 miles in that trip, and it was mostly easy. It took us about an hour, including the restroom break.

Crowded urban park. I could not socially distance myself (COVID-19) along the walkway on Chastain Park Ave.

Walked the trail from 7:00 am to 8:30 on a Sunday. It was nice and peaceful. I felt safe. Most of it is open. Minimal hills. Probably wouldn’t go later in the day because of the road traffic. Seems like it would get a bit noisy.

Part of the trail/sidewalk is under construction, so you have to turn around.

Very steep hills, I wouldn't classify it as "trail running" but the views are really nice! Beautiful in the mornings especially.

Make this a 4.2 mile! Start at King Rd NW/Northside Drive walking to the park, then complete the loop and return.

Great place for Soccer moms to gossip on flat ground.. not much else to it.. other than crowds of people.

This is a Golf Course and Football and Baseball and Tennis Courts. not much else of Park. 90 percent of green is space is wasted on Golf. Sidewalks are there to offer a trail, but its Way too narrow. and with all the people it just not a trail to go on if you just want the hike. However the best park of this Trail is the Yoga Pants.

Amazing! This park and Piedmont are now my two favorites. Chastain being number 1! Once you get the direction of the trail under control, it's so beautiful and relaxing to run. The hills got me, I won't lie. But, it's well worth it. 5 stars
