The Atlanta Beltline is a network of multi-use trails that are currently located in separate locations in the Atlanta urban area. These trails promote exercise and improve communities. The trails are open for bike riding, walking and running. The Atlanta Beltline is part of a regional plan for transportation throughout the city, the trails also connect to other recreational trails within the city and the local parks.

The existing portions of the Atlanta Beltline include: Eastside Trail, Northside Trail, Southwest Connector Trail, West End Trail and Westside Trail.

Future plans for the trail include expanding the current trails to make a 22-mile long loop around the city and adding parking and other facilities along the way.
