By completing these vital community projects we can continue to reveal the wonders of Peachtree Creek to Atlanta and preserve the experience of playing in the creek for generations to come. Miles of beautiful trails have already been constructed by South Fork Conservancy, largely funded and built by volunteers. Now it is time to expand to allow greater community access to this priceless resource. If we work together, we will create more than a trail; we will create a place where urban children catch their first frogs or see their first blue herons and where Atlantans will slow down and reconnect with themselves and the natural landscape.
Please help us bridge the South Fork’s historical, cultural, and environmental gap so this urban greenspace can become a place we all can explore and enjoy.
South Fork Conservancy Capital Campaign Projects
Cheshire Bridge Trailhead
The entrance to the Cheshire Farm Trail at Cheshire Bridge Road will form an inviting and attractive entrance to South Fork Conservancy’s trail system.
Crosswalk at Lindbergh
This crosswalk will allow trail visitors a safer route across Lindbergh Drive while walking from the Cheshire Farm Trail to the Meadow Loop Trail.
Creek Walk Connector
A broad paved path running under Interstate 85 and GA 400 will establish a formal connection between the Meadow Loop Trail and the Confluence Trail via the proposed new Confluence Trail Bridge.
Meadow Loop Renovation
After serving as a construction staging area for the Creek Walk Connector we will return the Meadow Loop Trail to its natural splendor with a new, low-impact trail on one side and a restored meadow on the other.
Confluence Trail Bridge
The heart of our trail system is the Confluence Trail Bridge that invites all Atlantans to cross the North Fork of Peachtree Creek from the PATH400 trail, the Atlanta BeltLine, or the sidewalks of Buckhead. This bridge is designed to be a gateway which will allow thousands of community members access to miles of urban creekside trails.
