The Westside Trail Extension is NOT YET OPEN. Informally known as “the Kudzu Line,” this stretch will extend the existing Westside Trail and connect to the Westside Connector, currently in development by the PATH Foundation.
Currently, a paved segment extending from Ansley Mall to just south of the Buford Spring Connector is paved and open to the public. A 0.8-mile stretch on the eastern edge of Piedmont Park is open as an unpaved trail. In its current state, this segment has a rough and bumpy surface of compacted railroad gravel and dirt.
Currently, the majority of the Southside Trail is an open unpaved Trail and provides connectivity between the paved Eastside and Westside Trails on the southernmost part of the Atlanta BeltLine loop. A 0.8 mile paved section is now open to the public and extends from the terminus of the Westside Trail at University Avenue and continues to just west of the I-75/85 overpass.
