We live just down the road from this great National Park and it is a haven for history buffs and people that want to exercise by hiking to the top of the mountain. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The staff there are all very friendly people and are more than happy to answer questions. We love our little... More

I am a big fan of national parks. This one is more about outdoor recreation with many hiking trails. Their is a nice visitors center with a museum, but as for actual history on the site their is not much that details what occurred. Today we took a hike to the top and enjoyed a nice view of Atlanta and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the film shown in the visitors' center theater. The museum was also good. Nice small battlefield with plenty of hiking opportunities or to just tour in your car getting the feel of what it might have been like 150 years ago.

I am a travel writer who covers National Parks (npplan.com) and I visited the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park in August, 2013. The park is located in Kennesaw, Georgia, a suburb north of Atlanta. It is the most visited battlefield in the National Park system, though that can be attributed to the fact that it is the only battlefield located... More

The Kennesaw battlefield is one of the most extensive preserved fields in the South. The battlefield interpretive center has a great film presenting the history of Union - Confederate engagement. There is also a small museum presenting period weapons and uniforms. A road takes you from the center to the top of mountain overlook which conveys the strategic importance of... More

If you like to hike, visit the Mountain Park in good weather; numerous walking trails and a car path criss-cross the mountain. Imagine the soldiers of both armies as they fought on this terrain 150 years ago, as Union troops under Sherman moved south to take Atlanta. The Visitors Center is a small but informative museum which depicts the conflict... More

I enjoy the history and the views here. For the best experience, one should walk the trails. Bring a camera and the family. Be wary of pedestrians and pets when driving up the mountain. It's very hazy in summer and hard to see Atlanta and Stone Mt. in the distance but it is still fun.

We really enjoyed hiking the trails here. There's a lot of interesting features - the river, the ridges where the battles were fought, etc. The area is very peaceful and covered with shade. The trails are well maintained. The museum was very interesting, too.

Its one of the calmest, most serene places to go for a walk or run. There are plaques and statues for any novice history buff.

Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is the location of one of the last big battles before the fall of Atlanta. There are hiking trails up Big Kennesaw Mountain, Little Kennesaw Mountain, and Pigeon Hill (which is the steepest hill I ever saw!). Thankfully, there is a road to the top of Big Kennesaw Mountain to access the top by motor... More
