The first segment of the PATH400 trail through Buckhead officially opened for walking and bicycling on Jan. 9.

A crowd of more than 80 business and government officials attended the opening, donning bright green hand-made scarves for a ribbon cutting ceremony at the “Buckhead wall” on Lenox Road.

The first segment of the trail stretches for about one-half mile, from Old Ivy Road to Lenox Road. It cost about $2.5 million to built, with money for the project raised through Livable Buckhead, a nonprofit group that says it works “to integrate into everyday life and business sustainable strategies that improve the environment and quality of life in the community.”
