The Southwest Connector Trail is a PATH Foundation-led project that will ultimately connect to the Atlanta BeltLine through the Westview neighborhood in southwest Atlanta as part of the 33-mile network of paved trails. The trail winds through a serene stretch of woods, originating at the existing Lionel Hampton Trail, passing by Beecher Hills Elementary School, and emerging onto Westwood Avenue. When complete, this trail will run 4.5 miles. Phase I of this project along with the Eastside Trail, the West End Trail and the Northside Trail will bring the total of permanent trails to nearly seven miles along and near the corridor.
The scheduled groundbreaking, which is open to the public, will be held on January 12, 2013, 9:30 a.m. at Beecher Hills Elementary School.
