Biking Trail or Pathway in Buckhead or Very Near.

I occasionly head to Atlanta for the weekend and stay in Buckhead. Usually I stay at one of the hotels right by Lenox Mall.

Are there any biking paths or trails near Buckhead? I know there's some residential not far from Lenox Mall, so there must be something somewhere for people that live there.

When I say near, I mean I could get my bike out of the car at the hotel and go from there. Even if it's mainly pavement, is there anything?

I'm not familiar with any trails in Buckhead. Traffic there is so heavy I'd be nervous about anything that wasn't a dedicated bike trail. If you're willing to drive a little these are great options:

How far is close enough ? Is 5 miles too far?

If so, check out these as possibilities (I do not know what bike paths they have, if any):

My brother was hit by a minivan in Buckhead. Luckily, he ended up with just a sprained knee and a bump on the head. He does not consider Buckhead bike-friendly. ;)

I wouldn't consider Buckhead as bicycle friendly either due to the traffic and lack of dedicated bike lanes. On the southern end of Lenox Square mall is the MARTA rapid rail station. You could take the train up a couple of stops to the Brookhaven area or down to the Midtown area around Piedmont Park and the Beltline Trail..

I wanted to post this question again just to see if I could find anything else out or maybe someone else will see it.

Just to clarify, I'm not looking to ride around Buckhead in the traffic or around the business district. I was just thinking there might be something within a mile of Buckhead or even two miles, that visitors don't know about. Many cities have bike paths or paved trailways within the city or very nearby. Pittsburgh, for example. I was just wondering about Buckhead.

Surely the people that live in and around Buckhead have somewhere to ride their bike?

Did you look at the Path link provided above? It lists a short trail in Chastain Park.
