Southwest Connector Trail (Atlanta BeltLine) Description

The Southwest Connector Trail is part of the Atlanta BeltLine, a 33-mile network of paved trails throughout the city. Although currently disconnected from other segments of the BeltLine, this one-mile pathway will one day extend 4.5 miles to reach the network.

The trail is pleasantly wooded and connects to the Lionel Hampton Trail on its western end. The trail pops out of the woods at Westwood Avenue into a residential neighborhood. Mid-way, a short spur of the trail winds down to Beecher Hills Elementary School.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available behind Beecher Hills Elementary School (2257 Bollingbrook Drive).
