1. West End Beltline Trail:
In 2008 the first phase of the 2.4 mild segment of the Beltline opened. This bikers trail goes from south of 1-20 and up to Marrietta street. Our taxis have taken people to this trail for its historic values. Known as a West End part of town near Washington Park.
2. Alpharetta Big Creek Greenway Trail:
It’s not typical to associate outdoor recreation with suburban mall areas, so this location surprises most bike riders. The Greenway runs a little over eight miles, where you can see nature at its finest. From small birds to an occasional deer passing by, Alpharetta is a piece of pure harmony. There are other trails near the area, and our taxi cab service has taken people to the Greenway, along with other trails in the neighboring city of Roswell.
3. Arabia Mountain Trail:
The Arabian Mountain Trail runs through Conyers (Rockdale County) and into Dekalb County at Stonecrest Mall. As a cyclist, you can start at the mall and go through Panola State Park. Parts of Stone Mountain cover this trail, and you’ll see lots of granite along the way. Have one of our DashRabbit taxi cabs take you here.
4. Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area:
Atlanta may lack a signature body of liquid, but boy, do we keep trying to make the Chattahoochee happen! And for good reason … while not impressive size-wise, it does have its watery charms. There are a little over seven miles of bike trails contained within the preserve; they are divided into two sections that run near the Cumberland Mall area and up into East Cobb County.
5. Stone Mountain Trail:
Our taxi cabs take more people to the Stone Mountain Trail than any other. The sheer contrast in landscape between the two ends of this 19-mile trail makes for quite a trip. You can ride from downtown Atlanta to the base of the giant rock with only 4 miles of the route on-street. Destinations along the way include the Martin Luther King, Jr. Historic Site, Downtown Decatur, and Stone Mountain Village.
