MORE TRAILS IN CONYERS

PATH is delighted to renew a partnership with the City of Conyers to extend the Olde Town Conyers Trail. The extension will begin at the existing trail near the library on Greene Street and continue north and east through Olde Town, two elementary schools, Rockdale County High School, and into Pine Log Park.

DIVIDED BY HIGHWAYS

A few of my biking buddies contacted me recently regarding the Georgia Department of Transportation’s (GDOT) plans to widen Georgia 400 north of I-285. The initial design does not include provisions for extending the PATH400 trail we are presently building in Buckhead. It is important that we can convince them otherwise. It was 1991 when […]

DESTINATION: COP

For twenty-three years, PATH has been developing a system of greenway trails and cycle tracks that radiate from the city into the suburbs. Our partnership with Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. has produced several segments of the Atlanta BeltLine which will soon circle the city with a trail worthy of national recognition. Now that the PATH trails […]

Southtowne Trail Extended

  Earlier this summer, PATH began constructing a one mile extension to the Southtowne Trail that will connect South Bend Park to the Swan Nature Preserve and the existing trail around Brown’s Mill Golf Course. The project traverses a defunct development on Harper Road that the City purchased as greenspace for the adjoining neighborhoods. Prior […]

Spanish Moss Trail Extended

Another 1.6 miles of the Spanish Moss Trail in Beaufort South Carolina was completed by PATH crews earlier this summer. The latest segment begins at Broad River Boulevard and continues north to just south of Laurel Bay Road. PATH crews had to restore a historic timber trestle over Alboghetti Creek in this phase, (pictured below). […]

PATH and Clayton County to Build Trail System

Earlier this year, Clayton County agreed to partner with the PATH planning and design team to develop a trail master plan for the County. PATH unveiled the “Clayton Connects” brand along with a 105 mile plan for trails at a public meeting in early June. PATH will also help Clayton build a demonstration trail in […]

Million Dollar Bridge

DCIM100GOPRO

Opening our 525 foot-long South River Bridge in Rockdale County was one of our proudest moments since we began building trails back in 1993. It was six years in the making, requiring multiple re-designs due to an ever-changing river channel, wretched soil conditions, and permitting issues. It started out much shorter, slightly lower, and certainly […]

Arabia Mountain PATH is Dedicated

The 33 mile-long trail system connecting Lithonia, The Mall of Stonecrest, Panola Shoals, Panola Mountain State Park and the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, was ‘grand opened’ twice this spring. Ed McBrayer, Director of PATH, led a group of fifty cyclists on Pride Ride from the Alexander Lake Trailhead to the Monastery on May 10th, […]
