Atlanta Beltline's Southwest Trail

Staff Pick

The Atlanta Beltline's Eastside Trail is a great place to visit if you want to get lost in a real-life artist's rendering of a smart-growth Nirvana. If you're in the mood for more rustic splendor, head south to Adair Park. There, the Beltline's Southwest Trail weaves through lush grass, between old warehouses, and under beautiful bridges. (Wear galoshes after rainy days, as the makeshift path is below grade and prone to flooding.) In late August, Beltline officials won an $18 million federal grant that will help fund construction of the trail segment to match the Eastside's design. While that's great news, it will be bittersweet for those who love the southwest's rustic authenticity and meandering feel. Enjoy it while you can. www.beltline.org.
