PLEASE READ ALL:
You must find your own way to the MARTA MidTown Transit Station. We'll meet here at the door going out to 10th Street. You'll want my cell number in case you have trouble - but don't plan on being late to the MidTown Station. Here is a Google Map to the Midtown Station:
We will start our urban hike at the MARTA MidTown Transit Station and head down 10th St past Piedmont 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 hang out at Krog for 30-45 minutes to sample some of the many food vendors if you'd like. We will come back the same way, however, we will stop at the Ponce City Market on the Beltline and explore the Ponce City Market for 45 minutes to shop or sample the food/drink vendors here as well.
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. You will need a headlamp, flashlight or other device to light your path on the way back - it will be dark.

|How to Get There:|
This event assumes you can figure out the best way for you to get to the MARTA MidTown Transit Station in time for the event. I recommend catching the MARTA train closest to you and riding to this station. Otherwise, you can park somewhere and walk here - that part is up to you. There WILL be a cost to ride MARTA.
GIVE YOURSELF PLENTY OF TIME
