Great Hike!

I love hiking the mountain in Kennesaw. It's FREE, and there are a few different trails you can walk. Very cool place!

Passing through town I thought I would take the extra time and check out the battlefield. Often when I do this, I am rewarded, and this time was no different. The battlefield is easy to reach from the interstate, has an outstanding visitor center and provides top of the mountain access via the drive or hike. I choose to hike... More

The replicated battle shows are really neat! They offer them a couple times of year. We have been on several of the hikes, and there are many to choose from, all fitness levels. Even a paved walking path is available for strollers and such. A great way to spend some of your time. We have seen deer and other wildlife... More

We arrived here late in the afternoon and just managed to catch the last showing of the film in the visitors Center, which is a must. It was a cold bleak afternoon but we decided to walk to the top of the mountain it is just over a mile but very steep. There are a couple of cannons at the... More

As a local I have enjoyed and explored all of Kennesaw National Battle Park. There are miles of trails that criss-cross the park. If you are just visiting the park the hike to Kennesaw Mountain is a must, and you should also visit Cheatham Hill. The south end of the park is quieter. The park stretches from Kolb Farm on...

This historical battlefield park combines history, outdoor recreation, and scenic beauty! Be sure to visit the friendly visitor center first and then allow sufficient time to see the movie, tour the museum, hike some of the excellent trails, and go to the top of the mountain for a spectacular view of Atlanta. The park was spruced up last year for... More

This park sprawls across a fairly packed urban area near Atlanta. The Civil War defense of Atlanta hinged upon the Confederacy holding Kennesaw Mountain. Starting at the Visitor's Center, you learn about he battle and it's significance to the outcome of that war. A number of walking, hiking and driving tours start and end here. There are also paved fitness... More

The story. the history, the trails, the view from the top, Great. However, the lower trails are covered with hundreds of doggy poop bags. It looked like everyone in Atlanta brings their dogs here to go to the bathroom. What a shame. Also people are supposed to have their dogs leashed at all times. We found this was not the... More

This battleground is also a place to get in shape! Hundreds of people walk the well-marked trails going up and down the mountain. Their are walking paths all around the lower battlefield area. Dog walkers, bike riders, joggers, walkers, hikers and outdoorsmen will find plenty of open air enjoyment. The museum offers a vivid film depicting the actual battle at... More

It was ungodly cold in Kennesaw. So we chose to take the Shuttle up to the top of the hill. It was cloudy...and FREEZING. So we were unable to fully enjoy the view or what the park had to offer. I went back during the week as you were supposed to be able to drive your car up to the... More
