Trolley Line Trail (GA) Description

Atlanta's first trolleys were developed in 1870s and the many lines were consolidated to form the Georgia Power Company. The Trolley Line Trail represents the first installment of an effort to convert the former trolley route that ran from the heart of Atlanta out to Decatur into a multi-use pathway. The local PATH Foundation has been instrumental in developing this, and other, Atlanta city trails.

Currently, only about a mile of actual off-road trail has been built on what is planned to be a seven-mile route when completed. The paved pathway begins just west of Coan Park in the city's Kirkwood neighborhood; after traversing the park, a short on-road segment on Woodbine Avenue connects to the remainder of the trail, which passes through Gilliam Park before coming to an end.

Construction has begun on the Eastside Trolley Trail extension, which will provide a seamless trail connection with the current western end of the trail and a portion of the Atlanta BeltLine's Eastside Trail. This new 1.6-mile segment of trail is expected to be completed around the end of 2022.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Coan Park (Woodbine Ave. SE and Anniston Ave. SE) and at Gilliam Park (Rogers St. NE and also Woodbine Ave. NE and Wade Ave. NE).

Trolley Line Trail (GA) Reviews

Not all off-road

"Unfortunately, about half the length of this trail (3.5 miles) is on roads with cars, so the trail currently does NOT connect Agnes Scott with the King Center. The section that is a separate biking/walking trail is winding, pretty, and fun for recreation. Too winding for bike commuting. Trail also ends well before downtown, when it dumps you back onto roads with major traffic. Better than what we had ten years ago, which was not much."
