Northeast Trail – Segment 2 is closed between Westminster Drive and Mayson Street for construction. This section is slated to be complete late fall 2023.
Northeast Trail – Segment 1 is closed between the Park Drive bridge and along the Carriage Trail through Piedmont Park. This is where the mainline trail diverges from the BeltLine Transit Trail – the open unpaved trail in the old railroad bed. The unpaved trail has a surface of fine, compacted gravel.
Design & Construction
When complete, the Northeast Trail will connect the northern end of the Eastside Trail up to the Lindbergh MARTA station. The middle section, which extends from Ansley Mall to the Buford Spring Connector, is currently paved. The remainder of the trail between Monroe Drive and Mayson Street is currently under construction.
The design of the Northeast Trail is divided into the three segments outlined below. Please stay tuned for more information as we engage the public in the process and check www.beltline.org/meetings for any upcoming public meetings.
Northeast Trail, Segment 1: Monroe Dr. to Westminster Dr.
This segment runs 0.9 miles from Monroe Drive to Westminster Drive with a portion along the Carriage Trail through Piedmont Park. Future transit will run in the old railroad bed for this segment. It is presently open to the public as an unpaved trail with a surface of compacted fine gravel. Updates on design and construction can be found here.
Northeast Trail, Segment 2: Westminster Dr. to Mayson St.
This segment, between Westminster Drive and Mayson Street is 1.2 miles in length and run from Westminster to Mayson Street / Plasters Avenue. Construction will include the full build-out of the multi-use trail, lighting, security cameras, and landscaping. Future transit will run parallel to the trail.

Northeast Trail, Segment 3 and connecting trails: Mayson Street to MARTA Lindbergh
This segment consists of 2.4-miles of mainline trail from Buford Highway to MARTA Lindbergh Station. It will include a connection with the PATH400 trail and access points from public streets. The project will involve crossings of existing MARTA heavy rail, NSR freight rail, CSX freight rail, GDOT freeway, and Peachtree Creek. Due to the complexity of the corridor in this section, it has been divided up into the mainline trail and corresponding connecting trails (Connectors 1, 2, 3, and 4).

Open Unpaved Trails: Rules of Use
PLEASE NOTE: Open unpaved trails have no additional lighting, no pavement, and limited points of access. Visitors can enjoy these pleasant retreats at their own risk and are encouraged to wear appropriate footwear or use a bicycle that can handle rough terrain. Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. is not liable for any injury or damage as a result of using these unfinished trails.
