Eastside Trail

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Eastside Trail is a walking and biking trail stretching northwest to southeast on the Eastside of Atlanta, part of the BeltLine ring of trails and parks.[1] It is lined with numerous notable industrial buildings adapted into restaurants, shops, apartments, condos, and two major food halls and mixed-use developments.

The first two-mile (3.2 km) stretch opened in October 2012, from Piedmont Park to the Krog Street Tunnel. It was extended from Krog Street to Kirkwood Avenue in November 2017.[2] A second extension brought it to Memorial Drive in July 2019.[3]
