Take part in the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum Southside Trail Walking Tour

Sophie-Ann McCulloch

ATLANTA, GA - Enjoy your leisure time by walking and exploring the horticultural collections on the surrounding neighborhood through the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum Southside Trail, on Sunday, September 5, from 09:00 a.m until 10:30 a.m.

This walking tour program will introduce you to interesting facts and the history of the neighborhoods they often look past and neglect. You can use this opportunity to witness how the BeltLine and the Arboretum evolve.

Walking activates your mind, body, and spirit to think positively. This is a fun way to engage with other people in the area, enjoy the fascinating Atlanta history, fresh air, and new city views.

The tour will be led by Jennifer Gerndt, an East Atlanta resident and a transplant who originated from Chicago. Gerndt has a Ph.D. in German linguistics, and loves hiking and walking.

The meeting point is at Corner of Glenwood Ave/Bill Kennedy Way in Glenwood Park and will end near the Beacon where the Grant Park Farmers Market is held on Sundays. The distance is around 2 miles and not a loop. There will be no restrooms along the way until you reach the end.

Some of the section on the trail is still unfinished and unpaved, uneven, and rocky. So it is recommended for participants to wear sturdy shoes such as sneakers to protect themselves. Sun protection and a water bottle are recommended as well because the track will most likely be sunny and hot.

This tour is free of charge, but registration is required and walk-ins are not acceptable. The committee is encouraging participants to donate when they register.
