Beltline hike synopsis with pix!
Our most recent urban hiking outing was a 7-mile jaunt on mostly active rails in the west and northwest beltline corridor. It was warm, but not really as hot or humid as it could be in mid-July. All in all it was a great hike and many thanks are due to our fearless leader Angel.
Some of the rails we walked were active and we actually saw numerous trains- some a little too close for comfort.
