PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE ALSO OFFERING A FIRST-DAY HIKE ON JAN 1. YOU MAY REGISTER FOR ONE, OR BOTH, TOURS. SUNDAY'S TOUR IS LOOKING "IFFY" DUE TO WEATHER BUT WE WILL WAIT UNTIL SATURDAY NIGHT TO MAKE THE "GO/NO-GO" DECISION.

Have FUN, make some new FRIENDS! Join us as we kick-off 2017 with a 2-Way First Day Beltline Hike. Please use our Facebook event listing to invite your friends. Kids and dogs are welcome!

    This is our first "2-way hike" so we are not 100% sure how this is going to turn out. The only thing we know is that this is going to be a lot of FUN. Here is what you can expect...
    • We will have two "guides" this Sunday. Dan Sobbott (aka, the 'Goat Whisperer') will be leading the group from Cabbagetown Park. Steve Saenz  (aka, the Chief Instigator) will be leading the group from Piedmont Park. 
    • Dan's Cabbagetown group will meet in the grassy area directly across from Sweet Cheats. You guys will head up Short Street to Wiley and through the Krog Tunnel and then on to your Pit Stop, which is Krog Street Market. If you use the eastern sidewalk of the tunnel (right side going north) you will get to walk on the new pavers that were recently installed on that surface. That sidewalk will become the multi-use trail when the Eastside Trail extension is completed next year. You will also get good look at the trail construction is taking place along Wiley Street east side of Estoria.
    • Steve's group will meet on the Interim Hiking Trail, which runs alongside the gravel parking lot behind Park Tavern. We will head south on the Eastside Trail on our way to Ponce City Market, which is our Pit Stop.
    • The two groups will be meeting somewhere near Historic Fourth Ward Park. At that point, we will all head down into the basin for some group photos and quick tour of the park.
    • After that you can A) Head home or back to your starting location; B) Continue on to the your next Pit Stop; C) Head over to Bantam Pub or D) Head over to City Winery to see the Muscle Shoals Music Review w/ Amy Black, which starts at 1:00PM (lots of seats open but best to order now if you are interested)
    • Download this map to see the exact spot of  all four meeting locations.
    Join the hike at any of these locations* * You will be asked to indicate this on the registration form
