The plans for the Atlanta Beltline propose to redevelop twenty-two miles of abandoned railway beds that encircle the city’s downtown core into a running and biking path, complete with new parks, accessible transit, and plenty of greenery. The ambitious plan has a long way to go, but the finished pieces are already in (heavy) use by bikers, runners, and young couples with strollers and cups of coffee. For a starter course, check out the Eastside trail—two miles of hiking and biking trails that connect Piedmont Park and Ponce City Market.
