Excellent hike up the mountain. Scenery is wonderful & the historic markers are very educational. When you get to the top of the mountain, you are surprised that you are still on the outskirts of Atlanta. Dog friendly.

Weather permitting, this is the place I go to clear my mind and get some outdoor exercise, weather permitting. Crowded on the weekends, so early or late are the times to avoid crowds. The park closes at 8:30, gates at 8 in the summer, and they often close the gates early. There are several trails for all levels-great exercise- if... More

I run/walk almost everyday at the park. It used to be a well kept secret but now since the government has relocated millions of people to the USA, you will hardly see any locals or anyone that speaks english, wants to say hello or even notice you are alive. It used to be such a friendly local place, a secret... More

Our family visited on the 151st Battle Anniversary Weekend. They had infantry, artillery, and signaling demonstrations. The girls in our group loved the Civil War "Fashion Talk." The artillery and infantry camps gave us an idea of what camp life would have been like 151 years ago. The movie, "One Last Mountain," shown inside the visitor's center was wonderful. I... More

Even greater for the History buff. Very nice Museum and sites, and we took the bus up to the tiop of the mountain for great views of the Atlanta area and some more history. There is a nice 20 minute film to watch in the museum that shows an reinactment of the battle of Atlanta.

the battlefield museum is great to visit on it own. If you love to hike, this is a great location to hike anytime of the year. It is so popular another parking lot was built. If you want to park in the main area, arrive as soon as the park is open otherwise you will be parking in the second... More

Almost 150 years to the day of the battles, I visited the battlefield and hiked the Kennesaw Mountain Trail. Nearly six miles in distance it's usually a routine walk for me. The exception is that it was 95 deg F ambient and about 110 heat index. My 70 oz Camelbak kept me hydrated. A memorable Fathers Day afternoon for me... More

We try to visit every National Park we come accroo on our travels. This was on the way to a garden we were g OK ng to visit. The ranger station and museum were great. They even had a civil war camp site reenactment going on when we visited. The challenge was finding a parking space to visit the park.... More

This is by far one of my favorite places to go. Not only do I get a wonderful workout but it saves on a therapist bill..lol. My mind is automatically cleared when I go here. There are so many trails that I mix it up every now and then. I love this place.
