We will start our urban hike at the welcome plaza right outside of the Sage Hill Parking Facility, which is on the south side of the Botanical Gardens. We will wind our way through Piedmont Park, past the dog park and Park Tavern to the beginning of the Eastside Beltline Trial (1 mile). We will travel down the entire length of the paved Beltline (2.25 miles), passing through Old Fourth Ward and Inman Park seeing lots of art along the way. We will make a left on Irvin Street and a right on Krog Street and briefly check out the Krog Street Market. There is free water and restrooms here should you need it. We will come back the same way, however, we will stop at the Ponce City Market exit on the Beltline and explore the market before heading back to our cars.
The entire hike is flat but please be sure you are able to hike 7 miles at a moderate pace. We will stay together as a group on this hike.
