May 1st Ponce de Leon History Hike

Hi UrbanHikers!
It's been awhile since we did a hike other than Beltline or forest hikes,
so on May 1st we're going to walk from west to east down the Ponce de Leon
corridor and learn all about the history of this part of Atlanta from our
group leader Tom Zarrilli.

Where? Meet at the MARTA Station entrance @ Ponce and W. Peachtree.
(Across from the FOX, AT& T bldg)

When? 10AM start, finish around lunch time

Who? ANYONE and EVERYONE is invited. This is FREE as always.

Distance? 2.5 miles +/-

Stops? countless historical points and a stop at Krispy Kreme for coffee
and doughnuts and Whole Foods for restrooms

Other info? This is a 1-way hike, so either plan to stage a car with
friends at the Plaza on the east end (Ponce and Highland area) or take the
#2 Marta bus back to where we started.

We did this last year and got RAVE reviews. Don't miss out this time!!

RSVP to me if you're interested so we have an idea of how many to expect.
Thanks and see you in May!



  1. I'd like to attend this hike. Is this where I RSVP?

  2. Hi Gracie,
    Send an email to and I'll put you on the list.

    Hope to see you on Saturday!

  3. I really like this blog. I did not realize how much hiking there was in the city. I constantly drive outside the city to hike.

  4. Found this blog by AJC mention:

    When is the next adventure?

    Btw, someone should translate the Chinese above :)
