PATH400 UNVEILS NEW SECTIONS TO CONNECT MIAMI CIRCLE TO PEACHTREE PARK
BY: Karon Warren
It may be cold out, but don your coat and scarf so you can check out the newest section of the PATH400. This multi-use trail in Buckhead now includes a stretch between Lenox Square and Miami Circle that puts pedestrians within a short stroll of a variety of local and natural attractions. Says Denise Starling, executive director of Livable Buckhead, the driving force behind PATH400: “Train enthusiasts can watch Norfolk Southern and MARTA trains zoom by just yards from the trail.
Nature lovers can check out the adjacent wetland that has everything from snakes to geese to beavers. Art lovers will be blown away by the gorgeous mural that local artist Krista Jones painted for us. One of my favorite features is a beautiful stone overlook that honors Maxine Rock, a longtime Buckhead resident and one of the founders of the PATH Foundation.”
With 80% of the 5.2-mile-long trail now complete, work continues to connect PATH400 with the Belt- Line and extend it all the way to Sandy Springs.
