Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield is a very interesting Historical area. Some people are there for the history, others come for the view and exercise hiking up the mountain. I would recommend that anyone coming for the first time go to the visitor center and become orientated to the battlefield and the surrounding area. Once you understand the topography begin your hike.... More

Been here on weekends only...hard to find parking in the main lot but there is a lot about a block or two away. Nice strong hike up to the top. Could use more seating at the top to take a rest before heading back down. Better trail markings are needed also. Usually can see deer who are completely oblivious to... More

My family and I stopped here on our way to Florida. We toured the little museum and took the hike up the mountain. The hike is moderate to hard and it was a fun hike to go on. At the top you are rewarded with views of Marietta and Atlanta. We enjoyed our couple of hours here and could have... More

For free, this is a nice battlefield to drive through and see history. You can hike, but given the long ditance 7+ miles and heat, we decided to drive. Cannons on ridges to see. The main problem is there are not enough signs to guide you once you park your car and walk. Cheatham Hill was a perfect example. Hiked... More

Great tip from one of the volunteers, see the film which explains what happened at Kennesaw and then go see the things. Without that for instance, I would not have understood the Confederate Earthworks and their significance. The views are nice, its worth a visit.

I enjoy going to this mountain. It has a lot of history and you can look when you are on top of the mountain at Atlanta, ga. This place has a lot of bikers meaning bicycles and walkers. It is beautiful and a lovely view very peaceful. I hope it stay's the way it is so many people can enjoy... More

Friendly place, easy to follow trails and great movie enacting parts of the Civil War. The area is beautiful and shady and fairly cool even in the middle of the summer!

My parents and I visited the park after touring Pickett's Mill. What a great preservation of history. You can't stand at "Dead Angle" and not get shivers.

So much fun! We arrived just in time for a talk and demonstration, which was excellently accomplished by a local group of reinactors. The entire area is just gorgeous; I didn't even mind the walk from the far parking lot. Just beware of the large amounts of dog doo on the sidewalk.

Family jaunt on a Sunday. Got to the parking lot at 10:30 a.m., so the primary lot was full. Fortunately the overflow down the road had plenty of room. This is a hike that many people can do. It isn't very steep, it's stroller-friendly (somewhat), and it won't take you all day to reach the summit. We saw lots of... More
