Paces is an exclusive residential neighborhood located in the northwest section of Atlanta, Georgia. The area has school grounds with recreation facilities, churches, and lots of natural areas around the residential homes within walking distance. A commercial area to the east boasts some unique restaurants and shops although the walkability is impeded by the freeway. Residents on the east side of Paces can access these businesses on foot by crossing under the freeway on West Paces Ferry Road. There is also a commercial area to the north which has a unique pet store called Whole Dog Market where local pet owners can pick up supplies. 

The weather in Atlanta is pleasant for walking most of the year with warm temperatures and sunny skies. Atlanta winters are cool and rainy, but not frigid, and snow is very rare. A warm, waterproof jacket to keep the chill out is adequate for walking with your dog.

Paces is an upscale neighborhood with large palatial homes on extensive properties. Homes boast large lawns and gardens with trees along driveways that provide privacy. The area has lots of natural space along the river and between homes, giving the area a secluded feel. A walk through Paces can feel very much like a walk in the country. 

The neighborhood is hilly and there are no sidewalks on most residential roads. Because of the elevation changes, lack of sidewalks, and heavy vegetation, walking in the area can be challenging. Keep an eye out for local traffic, wear bright clothing, and do not walk at night, dawn, or dusk when oncoming vehicles may have trouble seeing pedestrians. 

The interstate should only be crossed at the designated pedestrian crossing which runs on main roads under the freeway. There are creeks throughout the neighborhood feeding the river and some ponds.

The entire Paces neighborhood is, more or less, a greenway! With large wooded areas, hills, waterways, and ponds, the area has a country-like feel and trees provide plenty of shade on hot summer days.

If you are looking for a more dedicated hiking location, the Palisades West Trail is located to the northeast and can be accessed in the Cumberland neighborhood. This trail offers breathtaking views of the river with elevated rocky outcroppings and access to the sandy shoreline. The trail is a four-mile loop with rough terrain and hills, so you and your pooch should be up for the challenge. The trail runs through the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area which provides natural habitat for local flora and fauna. 

For those looking for a “tamer” greenway experience, the Atlanta Memorial Park is located a short distance to the east. This park features paved and unpaved trails through open and treed areas and recreational facilities.
