Scenic, outdoorsy spots in Atlanta?

I'll be visiting Atlanta in the spring for about a week.  What are some scenic, outdoorsy spots where I could maybe go on a hike or job while taking in the view?

    Not sure where you are staying but the Beltline Trail ( http://beltline.org/explore/maps/ ) is brand new and connects many parts of the city together in a trail used for bikes, joggers or walkers. The trail is more for "Urban Hiking". Stone Mountain is another place, however that is technically a park that requires admission but you can climb the back side of the mountain and see the entire city.

    Take highway 400 up towards Dahlonega Ga. There are a lot of waterfalls, hikes, parks and oh ya it's the southern start of the application trail! You will have way to much to do and cheers!

    Midtown Piedmont Park

    Atlanta’s central park has as fine mix of tar and turf for runners. The Atlanta Track Club has provided several water fountains in the park, making it easy to stay hydrated in the heat and humidity well known to Atlanta. If you prefer city streets, then take a turn around the perimeter of the park. It’s a nice 5K with sidewalks all the way.

    It you have a car head to the Silver Comet Trail

    Jog Virginia Highland Neighborhood too!

    Piedmont Park, Grant Park, the Beltline Trail, Lullwater Park Trail--all good for walking and jogging in ATL. If you want to take a bit of a drive, Stone Mountain and the East Palisades Beach are good for jogging. For hiking, try Sweetwater Creek State Park and Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park.

    You should check out Stone Mountain Park

    The hike is one mile each way, and the view from the top is lovely.
