In the west end of Atlanta, the best bet for running is the Historic West End neighborhood, and the Westside Beltline Trail, which binds the neighborhood.
Historic West End. Some pleasant streets in the West End Historic District, which lies just west of W. Whitehall St. (SR 29) and south of I-20. (MARTA: West End). See this guide to the area from the National Park service
Westside Beltline Trail. The multi-use path runs for 3+ miles between University Ave. and Washington Park. It is mostly unpaved. The nicest section is the 1.5 miles north of the 139 road to Washington Park, passing through several small parks. There’s a running track at the Booker T. Washington High School. Trail Information.
