In a news release, Livable Buckhead, a nonprofit dedicated to adding greenspace in the community, Friday announced the official name and logo for Buckhead’s new trail along Ga. 400, PATH400. Construction is set to begin within a year. It is expected to cost about $12 million.

The name is a nod to the PATH Foundation, a major contributor and construction partner for the project that has developed more than 160 miles of trails in Georgia. The PATH400 logo and the first of the trail’s signs have also been developed, bringing the project one step closer to becoming a reality.

“This is an exciting milestone in the life of this project,” said Denise Starling, executive director of Livable Buckhead, which has led the initiative to create the trail. “Maps and renderings and plans are great, but seeing the first sign for the trail really brings home the fact that PATH400 is on its way. After two years of meeting and planning, we have our first tangible piece of the trail, and it feels pretty great.”

Once completed, PATH400 will stretch 5.2 miles, from Loridans Drive south to Morosgo Drive. The trail will bring much-needed greenspace to Buckhead and will connect recreational, residential and commercial centers in the area. PATH400 will also connect to the Atlanta BeltLine, and to South Fork Conservancy’s trails, providing recreational opportunities that stretch well beyond the trail itself.
