Southside Trail (Atlanta BeltLine) Description

The Southside Trail is a developing project in the ambitious Atlanta BeltLine system, occupying a stretch of former rail corridor to the south of downtown Atlanta. The rail-trail provides a connection between the neighborhoods of Oakland City and Glenwood Park, passing through several other areas along the way, and also serves to connect the ends of the Westside Trail and the Eastside Trail, creating a continuous pathway across a huge swath of the metropolitan area.

Most of the trail is currently open as an undeveloped, unpaved pathway, so only trail users who are comfortable with natural surfaces should venture out. In the fall of 2021, the first paved portion of trail was opened to the public, providing just under a mile of concrete pathway between the end of the Westside Trail at University Avenue and the redeveloped Pittsburgh Yards site, a stone's throw from the interstate underpass. Future plans call for the paving of the remainder of the trail, starting from the end of the Eastside Trail with a planned start in the fall of 2022 - so be sure to check for construction work and closures before planning your outing.

Parking and Trail Access

No dedicated parking is currently provided for the trail. Short connector trails provide access from Allene Avenue and Manford Road to the south.
