TRAILS

PATH400 Greenway Trail Connection

What makes this project so special is it’s connection via the northernmost segment of PATH400 at I-285. While Sandy Springs is moving design and funding forward to connect with the existing trail in Buckhead, a dozen miles of trails are also in the works, connecting PATH400 to countless destinations like Perimeter Mall, Sandy Springs MARTA, City Springs, and beyond.

#PerimeterPretzel Puts a Local Twist on the Commute

Wonder what’s all the fuss with this “knot”-sense? Locally, the improved 285/400 Interchange has earned a fun nickname—Perimeter Pretzel—because its twisty design lends to the buttery-smooth travel flow. And here’s a little-known tidbit that makes this unofficial moniker extra fitting: Perimeter is home to GoTo Foods, the owner of everyone’s favorite pretzelmaker Auntie Anne’s.
