Looking for memorable, Instagrammable spots along the Atlanta BeltLine? Check out the locations below for cool public art, sweeping skyline views, and serene park scenes!
The tunnel under Lucile Avenue
Start with a walk through historic southwest Atlanta neighborhoods where you’ll find this old railroad tunnel splashed with a colorful mural by Hadley Breckenridge.
The Westside Trail passes under Lucile Avenue at this point. You can get onto the trail from Lucile Avenue via a connecting path down a hill (in the northwestern quadrant of the intersection). Map it here.
The tunnel under Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard
Continue your stroll south from the Lucile Avenue tunnel and you’ll reach this double-bay railroad tunnel with murals on both abutments.
You can reach it from Gordon White Park (just cross White Street to the south to enter the trail) and from Kroger Citi-Center (just look for the ramp down into the corridor from the east side of the parking lot). Map it here.
The tunnel under Lee Street and Murphy Avenue
You’ll find a dozen murals easily accessible from your next visit to Lee+White, an emerging beverage district in southwest Atlanta. With three three tunnels in one, you’ll find plenty of official Art on the Atlanta BeltLine work from BeltLine Walls in 2018 along with additional graffiti.
You can get to this spot from the West End MARTA station by walking down Lee Street until you see the ramp down into the corridor. Or, walk out the back of Monday Night Garage, onto the trail, and make a left. Map it here.
The Virginia Avenue Bridge
The northern end of the Eastside Trail offers up three popular photo ops – on top of the bridge capturing sunset shots of Piedmont Park and the Midtown skyline, and under the bridge with murals across two long walls.
This spot along the Atlanta BeltLine at Virginia Avenue definitely provides a sweet canvas. You can get to it from the southeastern corner of Piedmont Park or on foot from the Midtown and Virginia Highland neighborhoods. Map it here.
The North Avenue Bridge
Between the art, downtown skyline, and Atlanta’s tree canopy, you’ll always win with shots from the Eastside Trail bridge over North Avenue. For an added bonus, download the free Lotus Eaters Club app (for Apple and Android) to see the murals on the bridge come to life!
You can get to this spot from North Avenue via stairs or a soon-to-be-open ramp by Kroger or just walk out of Ponce City Market and make a right on the trail. Map it here.
Historic Fourth Ward Park
Looking for a peaceful park setting with an urban vibe? Historic Fourth Ward Park is just down the hill from the Eastside Trail and Common Ground and across North Avenue from Ponce City Market.
Host to festivals, musical performances, theater, weddings, family photo shoots, and more, just about any spot in the park is a serene setting for a photo. Map it here.
Underneath Freedom Parkway
This spot along the Eastside Trail showcases graffiti in its finest free form. With wide, sloping abutments and multiple large walls, this underpass has enticed artists to paint large works for years. You’ll find sculptures from Art on the Atlanta BeltLine here, but the murals are all done by the local artist community.
You can get here from Historic Fourth Ward Skatepark, from the Inman Park neighborhood by walking down Elizabeth Street and onto the trail, or from the Stone Mountain Trail that runs through Freedom Park. Map it here.
Krog Street Tunnel
The Eastside Trail runs along the east side of the Krog Street tunnel, one of Atlanta’s long-standing art landmarks. Every inch of the walls, ceilings, and abutments are covered in paint and often change over. You’ll always find something new – and likely find a video or photo shoot – every time you visit.
The long tunnel runs under an active freight train yard – Hulsey Yard – and you can reach it from Edgewood Avenue, Krog Street Market, or DeKalb Avenue from the north and the Cabbagetown and Reynoldstown neighborhoods to the south. Map it here.
Wylie Street along Hulsey Yard
Step south out of the Krog Street tunnel and into a half a mile of murals in either direction. Courtesy of the art project Forward Warrior, the walls along the southern end of the Eastside Trail offer a wide variety of vibrant works.
Head east and look back for skyline views over the walls and Hulsey Yard. Map it here.
