The BeltLine

Where Atlanta - - EDITOR’S ITINERARY -

Once upon a time, a 22-mile rail­road cor­ri­dor en­cir­cling At­lanta fell vic­tim to ne­glect. To­day, this once-de­cay­ing ring of rails is the ba­sis for one of the na­tion’s largest re­de­vel­op­ment projects and a wildly pop­u­lar at­trac­tion for both At­lantans and those vis­it­ing the city.

Five ma­jor hik­ing-bik­ing-jog­ging trails and seven parks of­fer am­ple space for ex­er­cis­ing any way you choose and for how­ever long. As you move, catch sight of amaz­ing works of pub­lic art that are al­ways be­ing re­freshed, watch skate­board­ers turn flip tricks at the world-class Fourth Ward Skatepark, splash around in streams or man­made wa­ter sources, try your hand at dis­c­golf on an 18-hole course, and en­counter some kudzu-eat­ing goats.
