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.

A little way outside the city but worth the visit. Had a 6 mile stroll around the mountain and would recommend walking shoes and not trainers as they give a much better grip where is a rocky surface that you will encounter on parts of the mountain. When you get to the top you see the cannon that were hauled... More

I spent a day at the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park walking along the trails that take you throughout the battlefield. The park looks to be a favorite for both visitors and locals who climb the mountain for exercise. The main parking lot filled up quickly and I was lucky to get one of the few remaining spots even though... More

It's been a while since I was there but it has a great view of Kennesaw and Marietta. The old cannons are very interesting and there are plaques that tell you about them.

Nice park, and a nice display of the events during the civil war in Kennesaw. Only had enough time to see the exhibition and the movie so can not comment much about the park itself.
