Bolton is located on the northwest side of Atlanta. This section of the city is referred to as the Upper West Side and is known for its historic neighborhoods. Bolton has some commercial activity, shops, and services located on main roads that can be reached on foot. There are some unique old houses to stroll by as well as a dedicated walking trail and park. A gymnastic center also resides in the area. 

Atlanta boasts warm temperatures with mostly sunny days for much of the year. Spring and fall are particularly ideal for walking with your dog. Winter is colder and rainy, but temperatures rarely drop below freezing and icy conditions with snow are extremely rare. Summers are very hot and humid and dog walkers should avoid extreme heat that can cause heat-related illnesses by walking early in the morning or later in the evening, staying hydrated, and seeking shady locations for a stroll with their pets.

Bolton is bordered on the south side by a large cemetery, the Inman Rail Yard, and the Hills Park neighborhood while the Chattahoochee River winds along the north side. There are tributary creeks running throughout the neighborhood with ravines and natural wooded areas. Bolton has many natural areas between the residential, industrial, commercial areas of the neighborhood which provide plenty of shade.  

Private properties are also well landscaped with nice gardens, lawns, and large trees. There are some apartment complexes as well. Some of the houses in the area are historic, older character homes while other areas have predominated ranch style bungalows. There are also some hilly sections in the area, although most hills are not very steep or difficult for pedestrians to climb.  

There is industrial activity on the north side of the district and this area, as well as the tracks and railyard, are not designed for pedestrian travel and should be avoided.

The Spink-Collins Park is a 21-acre natural habitat that is heavily treed and provides a home for local wildlife. There is a small playground and a paved trail located here for families to use. More natural trails exist in the park, but unmaintained trails may have rough or hazardous terrain. Remember that this greenway is meant to provide natural habitats and your dog should be leashed so as not to harass local critters that make the park their home.

The west side of the neighborhood has a greenway with a trail. The Whetstone Creek trail is 1.4 miles long, paved, and follows an old rail line in the area. Bikers and hikers use the trail, so watch out for traffic on the path. The trail crosses Whetstone Creek with a wooden footbridge. Much of the trail course is wooded with some marshlands as well which makes for a green, sometimes shady walkway for you and your pup to enjoy.
