The PATH Foundation
recenlty announced the launch of a new app that will let families, couples, and outdoor
enthusiasts explore PATH trails using mobile devices. According to a released statement, "the free app will
provide on-the-go GPS directions and general information about PATH’s
network of pathways throughout Atlanta, along with local weather
forecasts and news articles."
The goal is to create a
modern tool that will enhance people’s overall experiences on PATH
trails, which have been built over the past 20 years. “For me, the
ability to navigate quickly to the parking spots along my favorite
trails – like the Silver Comet – is important,” said Alex Taylor,
senior vice president of field operations for Cox Communications.
“Everyone should find this a very useable app for getting out on PATH
trails.” Taylor, a PATH board member, helped forge the
development of the new app.
Director Ed McBrayer said the app will be instrumental in helping more
people discover trails throughout the Atlanta area. “It’s exciting to
see our vision for a network of trails coming to fruition in Atlanta,
and this app gives people the information they need to navigate and
enjoy them all.”

The PATH Foundation and
its many contributors have been building a network of over 180 miles of
off-road trails in and around Atlanta for walkers, runners, cyclists and
skaters for more than 22 years and has
become a nationally recognized model for trail-building success.
PATH has made significant progress
toward building Georgia a network of trails, including: The Silver
Comet, Stone Mountain, Lionel Hampton, South Peachtree Creek, Westside,
Arabia Mountain, Chastain Park, Whetstone Creek,
and South River Trails.
