the best spot along the atlanta beltline eastside trail
The Eastside Trail, in the space where North Highland Avenue and Historic Fourth Ward Park entrances meet, holds a hidden gem that is one of the best spots along the Atlanta Beltline.
And what is this hidden gem I speak of?
Yes, an underpass that sits below Freedom Parkway is the best spot along the Atlanta Beltline Eastside Trail and here's why.
the walls and ramp of this underpass are covered in graffiti--and it's constantly changing with new tags and street art. There's also a large art installation as part of Art on the Beltline that changes yearly. If you look closely, you'll even spot a tiny door ATL that calls the underpass home.
The people watching
This portion of the Atlanta Beltline is heavily trafficked, so there are always people flowing through. even amidst all the bustle as people walk, bike and run by, I find a certain comfort in the chaos. it's a popular spot for selfies and photos, too.
Next time you're out walking the Eastside Trail, take a break and enjoy this unlikely gathering space.
