This is a large park with many hiking trails, monuments and a drive up the mountain (during the week...I think on weekends they take you up by park bus) takes you to the top of Kennesaw Mountain where the cannons and troops were partially staged while awaiting attack during the...

I am CW enthusiast who has been to many of the battlefields and sites across the south.

The information about the battle made you think. The mountain view from the top was marvelous. The ranger and gift shop hosts were very helpful. I was frustrated at the lack of parking space.

Besides the recreational opportunities, I also enjoy the historical aspects of the... More

Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is worth the visit. My husband and I walk at this park often, it's very family and dog friendly, and they have miles upon miles of hiking trails. The views are gorgeous, the people are friendly, and it's a very safe park.
