We were driving around Kennesaw, looking for things to do and mountains to wander. We ended up at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. We did get out for a few minutes but ended up mostly driving through and around. The road to the mountain is closed on the weekends so that was the only downfall we really ran in to.... More

Did not expect such a great family oriented beautiful place to walk and talk with friends, so close to gridlock traffic. Great place to stop and stretch and walk off the traffic until 5:30!

It is easy access from I 75. It is very pretty except when you remember what happened here. The mountain is about 1800 feet tall. There are about 3,000 acres that have hiking trails. No bikes allowed on trails,but, you can take the road that goes up the mountain. Dogs are allowed but have to be on a leash. There... More

Be sure to watch the movie at the visitors center. The battle sights are so calm and beautiful. Close your eyes you can feel the violence of these pivotal battles

It's nice attraction for the short time. I mean you can after office hours too. You can go on top by driving also. Just about a mile. Once you will reach on top, sit there for fresh air. Accessible by road for runners.

We visited on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. We had a bit of trouble finding parking, but enjoyed the walk along a portion of the battlefield. My 10 year old enjoyed the Junior Ranger program. We enjoyed the film - though it is a bit bloody. All in all it is very well done and recommended.
