If someone tells you soon that they’re going to take a walk down 400, they won’t mean taking a stroll down the highway. That’s because the Buckhead area is about to get a new walking trail.

PATH400 is 5.2 mile trail that will run along the Georgia 400 highway corridor. It begins roughly where the 400 toll plaza used to be, and from there it heads down south to Peachtree Creek, where it will tie in with the Beltline.

It’s a big project, and it’s being constructed in phases. To learn more, host John Lemley recently spoke with Denise Starling of Livable Buckhead, one of the organizations spearheading the trail. John began by asking where the idea for PATH400 originated. 

Broadcast version of the story that originally aired on December 19th, 2014.

The first phase of the trail will run from Lenox Road to Old Ivy Road. The official opening will take place on Jan. 9. More information on the trail may be found here.
