DescriptionThe Phoenix Trail runs from College Park’s former industrial area, now primarily containing airport hotels, to W. Point Avenue. The nearly 2-mile rail-trail, which was built on a rail banked CSX corridor, skirts the western edge of Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The trail allows hotel guests to get some exercise, while also providing a convenient route to reach College Park’s downtown area and MARTA train station via the sidewalk along W. Point Avenue. An underpass offers a safe crossing of busy Interstate 85 along the way. The trail is clean and well kept. Lots of greenery around to help you forget about the hotels and surrounding office buildings. Very quiet and peaceful. There are no mile markers, police call boxes or doggie poop bags available along the trail. Also lacking is signage and parking access. Park in the Ruby Tuesday lot on Sullivan Rd or you can get easily get to the trail from one of the many hotels along Sullivan Rd. http://www.traillink.com/trail/phoenix-trail.aspx
