The park has greatly improved over the last few years. We were greatly impressed with their 150 yr Civil War remembrance. New signage and new areas of the park opened this last summer. Make sure you see the Illinois m Monument off of Whitlock rd.

Always a good place to hike. There are a great many trails. You don't have to hike up the mountain. My favorite hike is off the picnic area near the visitors center.

Walk back in time to the Civil War years as you walk the halls of the museum and the trails of Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield. Be sure to watch the video presentation in the theater section. It is worth your time.

This was a great experience. Beautiful views of the city of Atlanta and can see Stone Mountain. Good exercise. Took the Intermediate hike for 3 miles. Seniors can enjoy this hike too. Many dogs loved this.

Hike at least 3 times a week to the top thru the woods and down the road with great vistas of Marietta, Kennesaw, Acworth, Atlanta and Stone Mountain. Safe and well travelled.
