The Stone Mountain Trail connects Stone Mountain to central Atlanta, and connects in to the Atlanta BeltLine and adjacent neighborhoods. From the Stone Mountain bike path through Freedom Park, you can cut south on a spur trail that leads downhill to the Eastside Trail.
You can also reach the spur from Elizabeth Street to reach the Eastside Trail. The paved part of this trail extends south to Irwin Street and will soon be extended to Memorial Drive by way of the Krog Tunnel and Wylie Street. Heading north, the paved trail extends to Monroe Drive and continues alongside Piedmont Park as an interim hiking trail.
