This greenspace is in addition to those featured in Hiking Atlanta’s Hidden Forests.
Description: On the north side of Lindbergh Drive is the Cheshire Farm Trail. It has a gravel surface. On the south side of Lindbergh Drive is the Meadow Loop Trail, a natural-surface trail. The Cheshire Farm Trail is clearly marked, but the Meadow Loop Trail is more obscure. As of now, you need to go over or around a guardrail to access it, and it is marked by a wooden sculpture. (Edit: As of September 2014, this wooden trailhead marker now has trail information on it.)
There are plans to connect these two trails to the Confluence Trail, Morningside Nature Preserve, Zonolite, and the forthcoming GA-400 trail.
What’s there: Hiking trails
History and historical markers: The Cheshire Farm Trail is named after Hezekiah Cheshire, a War of 1812 captain who had a large farm in this area in the 1840s, and whose home was near the northern trailhead. That trail was built by the Georgia Department of Transportation as a concession to the neighborhood in exchange for the construction of I-85 & GA-400 flyover ramps.
