Share what you know about this area with the community.
Metro Atlanta is situated in the Appalachian Piedmont, featuring pine and hardwood-covered hills, rocks, and roots, all criss-crossed by water. Any trail built in this area may start out smooth, but it won't remain that way long. Water and wear bring out the natural features of the soil, making even beginner trails a bit of a challenge.
Wildlife abounds throughout all of the trail systems. Be prepared to stop for turkeys, turtles, deer, chipmunks, squirrels, coyotes, snakes, lizards, foxes, raccoon and opossums.

Nick's Food To Go
Get a gyro at this takeout-only spot and you won't be sorry. But make sure not to annoy Nick, who can ask for your order and threaten to kick you out of the space in the same breath. [Eater 38 Member]
The Smoke Ring
This Castleberry Hill spot opened late this Fall and is already a contender for some of the city's top barbecue. Go for ribs, brisket, jalapeno cornbread, and cocktails like the boiled peanut martini.
