Atlanta Beltline Eastside Hiking Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Eventually, the Eastside Interim Trail will be paved, but for now it remains a gravel-and-dirt path that’s perfect for walking and trail running. No doubt, this is an urban hike, as the trail runs beside Ansley Mall, a dog park, and a golf course. But the path follows an attractive corridor filled with creeks, trees, tall grasses, and even a surprising stand of rhododendrons.

A little less than half a mile down the Eastside Trail you’ll encounter another surprise—a rustic 20-foot-tall metal cone that sits next to a chair, pointing toward the sky. In 1968, Atlanta resident Louise Taylor built the Listening Device using scrap materials and aimed it toward the heavens to see if she could listen for her companion, Mel Mann, a civil rights activist who was struck by a car and killed in 1967. By including the Listening Device, the Eastside Trail preserves a piece of Atlanta history as well as its natural environment."
