May 2022 BeltLine Engagement Sessions

The BeltLine is updating their master plan, including Subarea 6, which includes the portion running through Piedmont Heights. 

Parts of their draft reflect the Piedmont Heights Master Plan from 2015, while other parts drastically increase the number of residents in our area – including their support for 10+ story residential complexes. 

NOW is the time to VOICE. YOUR. OPINION!

Staffed Sessions in Person at Ansley Mall, Suite 307:
  • Thursday, May 19 from 4-7 p.m.

Also consider joining PHCA's Planning Committee if you'd like to get more deeply involved on this effort to advocate for our neighborhood's best interests.

For the latest construction and planning updates, visit these links regarding the various portions of the Northeast Trail, which runs through Piedmont Heights. Overall, it sounds like these portions require more funding and a lot more work/decisions on the design to really progress.

April 2021: The Northeast Trail is Open!

It's official—the Atlanta Beltline Northeast Trail is OPEN! Hop on over to the entrance on the Montgomery Ferry Road bridge and explore this brand new trail.

The trail extends north a bit before it ends in the Armour-Ottley area. You can also go south on the trail and follow it behind Ansley Mall, even though that section is unpaved. It connects to the trail in Piedmont Park and onto the Eastside trail and beyond. 

For your own safety and out of respect for private property in the neighborhood, please resist the urge to create unofficial entrances to the new trail. Please use the Montgomery Ferry Road bridge – the extra steps will do you good!

The Northeast Trail

The BeltLine is a 22-mile loop of historic railroad lines encircling Intown Atlanta with a radius of two-to-four miles from Atlanta's center. Over 100,000 people live within half a mile of the BeltLine, which connects 45 of the city's neighborhoods. 

The Atlanta BeltLine's Northeast Trail starts at Monroe and Piedmont Rd. The first point of entry in Piedmont Heights will be at Clear Creek and Monroe at Ansley Mall. Another entrance will be on Montgomery Ferry Rd by the bridge near Ansley Golf Course. The trail will continue through the Armour/Ottley area and the Buford-Spring Connector, terminating at the Lindbergh Marta Station. See PiHi Alliance boundary map.

For your safety and to avoid disruption and delays during construction, please stay off the trail while work is underway. Check out the latest info from the BeltLine's May 14, 2020, webinar. 

Part of the Northeast Trail behind Ansley Mall from Monroe to Mayson Street is slated to open in end of 2020!

You can report maintenance issues on the trail by calling (404) 546-0311 or visiting
