Description

Running from Chimney Park and the Newton County Library to Eastside High School, the Eastside Trail is a 2.5-mile, multi-use, greenway trail. Opened in early 2013, the 10-foot-wide concrete path begins off Ramsey Drive in Covington, on the west side of the Newton County Public Library.

The first 0.6 miles meander through a woodland area behind the library and the Newton County Health Center. After winding gently though the woods over rolling terrain, the trail drops down to cross Martin Street at the intersection with Hazelbrand Rd.

The trail features four wooden boardwalk sections that traverse forest wetlands and a tunnel beneath the Covington Bypass Road, which allows pedestrians and cyclists to pass safely beneath the traffic overhead. On the east side of the bypass, the trail continues east and then runs between pasture and woods south to the high school.

Flora & Fauna

Deer, bunnies, squirrels, birds.
