Eastside Trail (Atlanta BeltLine) Description

Atlanta's Eastside Trail stretches just over 3.5 miles between Piedmont Park and the neighborhoods of Cabbagetown and Reynoldstown. As its name implies, it runs along the east side of the city, offering spectacular skyline views, and is part of the Atlanta BeltLine, a planned 33-mile network of trails around the city.

The paved pathway connects several parks, including the 200-acre Piedmont Park and the Historic Fourth Ward Park with its playground, outdoor theater, and a lake. Along the way, you'll also have access to the Martin Luther King, Jr. historical site in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood and, on the south side of Freedom Parkway, you can connect to the Stone Mountain Trail, which provides access to numerous cultural amenities.

Continuing south, the trail crosses over Interstate-20 and proceeds through Reynoldstown into Glenwood Park, using a mixture of wide concrete sidepath and a nicely buffered cycle-track path. The southern end of the trail marks the beginning of the Southside Trail, which currently exists as an unpaved dirt trail, with plans for construction and paving set to start towards the end of 2022.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in Piedmont Park (400 Park Drive Northeast) at the north end of the trail.

Eastside Trail (Atlanta BeltLine) Reviews

a little gravel, a little speed

Rode this and other sections this morning. I would recommend a gravel bike to have the most fun. Semi slicks work really good.

excellent trail

Went for the first time today and was impressed. It was crowded with walkers. Bicycles, scooters, etc. but there was plenty of space for everyone.
