West End Trail

A Historic Place to Start

Historic West End was originally called Whitehall, and later grew into Atlanta. From humble trolley stop and railroad beginnings, West End has grown into a vibrant community, and is where the Atlanta BeltLine first became a reality.

First Trail on the Ground

Opened in two phases, the first in October 2008 and the second in June 2010, the West End Trail was the first section of the 33-mile Atlanta BeltLine trail system to be built. It stretches 2.4 miles from White Street to Westview Cemetery, seamlessly connecting several Southwest Atlanta neighborhoods, including historic West End, Mozley Park and Westview.

A Collaborative Effort

Completion of the West End Trail was the culmination of an effort nearly a decade in the making. Over that time period, conversations between neighbors and interested stakeholders helped garner additional support from community residents, organizations, and businesses. Construction of the trail was designed and managed by the PATH Foundation, with funding provided by Transportation Enhancement grants through the Department of Transportation, the PATH Foundation, and the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership Capital Campaign. Trees Atlanta installed the first segment of the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum along the trail on White St.

Parking is available along some neighborhood streets, such as Peeples and White Streets near Rose Circle Park at the southern end of the trail.

Maintenance issues on the trail can be reported by calling and leaving a detailed message at 404.477.3687. If possible, take a photo and send it to us at Please remember to always call 911 in the case of emergencies.
