The Cheshire Farm Trail is a walking trail along the South Fork of Peachtree Creek in Atlanta.[1][2] Ribbon cutting is scheduled for September 2014.[3]

The trail, costing ca. 1 million US dollars, was funded by Georgia Department of Transportation to appease local residents who were not happy about construction of a flyover for the Georgia 400/I-85 interchange. The trail is named for the Cheshire family, Atlanta pioneers.[4] Two brothers of the family had homesteads across the creek from each other. The bridge they built gives name to the local thoroughfare Cheshire Bridge Road[2]
