Eastside Trail Frequently Asked Questions

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Curabitur ut lorem vitae ipsum fermentum ornare vel non dui. Phasellus malesuada vestibulum ultrices.

When will transit be built on the eastside corridor? +-

Transit construction will begin in Period 1 (between 2014-2018) of the Atlanta BeltLine’s Strategic Implementation Plan. The first phase of transit will connect to the Atlanta Streetcar with two cross-town connections and transit on the east and west sides of the Atlanta BeltLine. You can read more about the Atlanta BeltLine / Atlanta Streetcar System Plan here and download the Final Report, which breaks transit construction down into phases for the entire streetcar network.

Where can I park to access the Eastside Trail? +-

Parking is available at the northern end of the trail in the paid lot beside Park Tavern (on Monroe Drive just north of the intersection with 10th Street. On-street parking is available at Historic Fourth Ward Skatepark with a direct connection to the trail. You may also park on the streets surrounding Historic Fourth Ward Park and use the Gateway Trail, which provides a direct connection between the Eastside Trail and Historic Fourth Ward Park. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can park at the Piedmont Park / Atlanta Botanical Garden paid parking deck and walk our interim hiking trail south to where it meets the paved trail.

Will the trail connect to Ponce de Leon Avenue? +-

Yes. The Atlanta BeltLine received a federal grant through the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Livable Centers Initiative to construct ADA-accessible ramp at Ponce de Leon Avenue. This same grant will also go towards pedestrian and streetscape improvements along Ponce de Leon Avenue.

How do I report a maintenance issue that I see on the trail? +-

We have a “fix it” line for reporting maintenance issues. Just call and leave a detailed message at 404.477.3687. If possible, take a photo and send it to us at fixit@atlbeltline.org. Please remember to always call 911 in the case of emergencies. 

Will the Eastside Trail connect to shopping centers along its route? +-

The Atlanta BeltLine is prioritizing access from existing public right-of-way. The Atlanta BeltLine is providing design standards for connections to private developments.

What hours is the Eastside Trail open? +-

For the immediate future, the trail will maintain City of Atlanta park hours: 6 a.m. through 11 p.m.

Can I post my business’ sign along the trail? +-

It is illegal to place signs advertising a business within Atlanta BeltLine property along the Eastside Trail. Businesses along the trail are welcome to identify themselves to trail users by putting signs on their own buildings, but no signs are allowed along Atlanta BeltLine property. All signs must comply with the City of Atlanta’s sign ordinance.
