FOR 25 YEARS,

the PATH Foundation has been building
a network of off-road trails in and around
Atlanta. This system of scenic greenways
preserves our region’s forested character
and offers opportunities for families to
enjoy nature together.

 

Since 1991, PATH trails have been enhancing community spirit and bring-
ing neighborhoods together. Each day, thousands of joggers, walkers, bikers and skaters from all walks of life escape the roads and hit the trails for exercise, recreation, and commuting needs.

 

The demand for trails has increased
dramatically as our citizens look for safer
ways to exercise, enjoy the outdoors and
reconnect with their neighbors. From
Atlanta’s Eastside to its Westside, from
Stone Mountain to the Alabama state line,
more Georgians have convenient access
to safe and scenic PATH trails.

In its earliest days, PATH recognized the
need to create greenway trails in our city
for recreation and commuting purposes—
but never imagined the almost limitless
ways that people of all ages would
incorporate PATH into their lives.

Trails are important to all of us. PATH
trails encourage health and well-being;
promote public safety; increase real estate
values; and spur economic development
and neighborhood revitalization.

With an exciting 25-year history, PATH
has an impressive track record of finishing
projects ahead of schedule and under
budget, while leveraging significant
public funding for each and every mile.
PATH partners with public and private
entities to build consensus within
neighborhoods, generate local support
and together accomplish trail-building
goals that boost economic development.

The PATH Foundation is a private,
nonprofit organization that needs your
support to continue its trailblazing work in
Atlanta and throughout Georgia, mile by
mile. Ninety-six cents of every dollar
contributed goes directly to building and
maintaining trails. Every dollar donated
to PATH makes a difference—helping
to extend existing trails and to create
new ones.
Join us in building a comprehensive, connected system of greenway trails for 25 more years to come.
