Meanwhile, PATH400 in Buckhead just keeps getting it done. Quietly.
Despite bone-chilling temps in the 50s and uncomfortably drizzly conditions, we ventured out this week to see how the latest PATH400 section has turned out.
The multi-use trail, running along Ga. Highway 400 through Buckhead, stretches more than 2.5 miles now, which means it’s halfway done, less than three years after construction launched.
Last summer, we toured these reaches of PATH400 while they were under construction and peered deeper into unbuilt sections that are behind locked gates now. And here’s a visual tour of the more well-known first phase.

UPDATE: A clarification pertaining to the photos below, per Livable Buckhead:
The Gordon Bynum pedestrian bridge over GA 400 is the start of a spur trail that will eventually run all the way to the Lenox MARTA station. So the last three photos in the set are of the future spur trail, not PATH400. This spur trail is likely the first of several that will connect to PATH400 since the project was always envisioned as a spine that would connect much broader network of trails, parks and greenspaces throughout Buckhead and beyond.
