Oakland Cemetery
For an invigorating run on a quiet, shady, nearly traffic-free trail, hit the asphalt paths of the OAKLAND CEMETERY. The 88-acre site is the third-largest greenspace in Atlanta, and we do mean green. This last resting place for 70,000 souls is thick with ancient magnolias and oaks, hence its name. Themore...
For an invigorating run on a quiet, shady, nearly traffic-free trail, hit the asphalt paths of the OAKLAND CEMETERY. The 88-acre site is the third-largest greenspace in Atlanta, and we do mean green. This last resting place for 70,000 souls is thick with ancient magnolias and oaks, hence its name. The 2.5-mile paved trail provides a heart-pumping workout as its rolling terrain rises more than 60 feet in elevation in some places. Six Georgia governors and five Confederate generals, as well as the remains of a 125-year-old slave named Bosan, are buried there. "248 Oakland Ave. 404-688-2107. "www.oaklandcemetery.com. less...

Lullwater Park

Clifton Road, near Emory University Freedom Parkway may boast a longer and better-known jogging path, but for serenity and cleanliness, nothing beats Lullwater Park. Lush trees provide ample shade for joggers and walkers on the two cement paths that encircle a small lake. You also can check out the posh digs of Emory University president's grand Victorian-style mansion, previously owned by Coca-Cola scion Asa Candler. No playgrounds mean your run won't be tripped up by screaming kids, but look out for amorous co-eds, who sometimes use the less-trodden dirt paths for some intensive studying. less...

Chastain Park
A friend once said if I ever saw him running by the side of the road, stop and pick him up because someone was after him. For that reason, we advise joggers to stick to the 2.4-mile track at Chastain Park, which is populated day and night and provides plenty of challenging hills and valleys. Just keepmore...

For that reason, we advise joggers to stick to the 2.4-mile track at Chastain Park, which is populated day and night and provides plenty of challenging hills and valleys. Just keep a sharp eye out for stray golf balls. less...

If you head west, young man, late at night along the Freedom Parkway jogging trail, you'll catch a gorgeous view of downtown. For this panorama, the Freedom Parkway trail has been nominated as the best view in Atlanta. But it's a great jogging path because the trail is largely uninhabited compared to Piedmont Park or Chastain, which allows runners to set their own pace without feeling the need to show off for the other runners. less...
