The BeltLine was born from a graduate thesis that envisioned transforming 22 miles of decaying railroad lines into a ring of multiuse trails and public transit. This vision is slowly becoming a reality known as the Atlanta BeltLine. Today, only a few sections of the massive project are open to the public. By far the most popular of these completed sections is the Eastside Trail. Stroll, run, bike or blade this popular intown path, stopping on the way to view public art installations. Plenty of fabulous restaurants and shops line these 2.25 miles, which wind through Piedmont Park, Historic Fourth Ward Park and the Freedom Park trail.
