The Oldcastle Nature Trail at the Marcus Autism Center is next to the Marcus Autism Center off of Briarcliff Road.

Sidenote: The Marcus Autism Center offers families access to the latest research, comprehensive evaluations and intensive behavior treatments. It is on of the largest Autism Centers in the United States.

It is a very shady very well kept trail….IMG_7239

It is not really long, but part of it goes up a trail and up a hill with exercise stations alone the way. It winds it’s way back down to a large field and steps up to a school. It’s a fun little trail IMG_7238

Atlanta Beltline

We started in The Old Fourth Ward and climbed up to the Beltline. IMG_5648  This is looking down at the Old Fourth Ward from the Beltline…IMG_5647

The Beltline is very well kept and has amazing artwork and architecture on the walk. IMG_5577This is Ponce City Market, it is going to be super cool for great shops and unique places to eat.IMG_5644Cool artwork on the Beltline!IMG_5585   IMG_5600    IMG_5609    IMG_5624

The Beltline leads you into Piedmont Park and this group of bike riders came up behind me…IMG_5634 Apparently the Atlanta Police must have a bike riding series for kids for the summer…pretty cool!

If you have the chance, you really need to check it out…IMG_5590(Additional information….this was built on old railway corridors and the Ponce City Market was the old Sears Building. The trains would run directly into the Sears Building, thus this sign…IMG_5580Pretty cool huh?)
