Great place to run, jog, and hike to the top of mountain enjoying some beautiful skyline of Downtown Atlanta, Midtown Buckhead and miles and miles of pines lol After all we are in Georgia! Make sure bring your loyal paw friends, too. Because they deserve it as well!

We visited Kennesaw today for a hike after so far driven everywhere in the city. In 30 degree heat we attempted and conquered the Kennesaw Mountain and the 5.8 mile round route. We loved it, the uphill was hard work but the views at the top are amazing, you can see the whole of Atlanta! The guides in the visitors... More

Made this side trip when in Atlanta and was glad we did. Easy to find and no cost. Informative 35"movie about Kennesaw and it's role near the end of the civil war. Excellent gift shop as well. For the more athletic, there are numerous hiking trails. We took the main trail that was about a mile up to the top... More

There is ample parking at the mountain and the overflow parking lot. The trails are plentiful and the crowds are nice to see. The further away from the parking lots you get the less traveled the trails are. This is my favorite place to run in the morning or early evening when you often see a ton of wildlife including...

This is a nice little mountain to hike or jog to the top of on a well worn trail. It is always busy so you should feel safe. Nice informative information center and gift shop at the bottom of the mountain.

This is a beautiful park to explore alone, with friends or family. Various trails are available to suit your ability and it is very scenic. I enjoy all of the trails, but those that run around the base of the mountain are my favorite. It is well traveled so you will feel safe and you will see park rangers on... More

Hiking up and over the mountain will keep your heart rate elevated for sure! Very scenic and well traversed trails to the parking lot up top. Get there early because parking is a premium. Overflow lot just down the road adds to your hike. Driving up the road is only allowed on weekdays so it is used by hikers on... More

Beautifully maintained park with lots of different trails. There is a visitor center with maps and restrooms. It's best to stop in and grab a map but the trails are marked well. You can make it a long one or a short one. Plan on climbing up some rocks for some good exercise or take the flat road and get... More

I'd heard much about Kennesaw Mountain, probably more for it's historic value than as a hiking destination but had a free afternoon an thought I should give it a try. We asked the Ranger at the visitor's center about a good four mile hike and he directed us to a loop which went over up and over Kennesaw Mountain. He... More

The "other" Mountain north of metro-Atlanta, Stone Mountain with carvings commemorating the Generals on the Civil War. Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield has a very informative visitor center, several walking hiking trails and a roadway that takes you to a parking lot close to the top of the mountain. More historical plaques and great views of the surrounding area of Marietta and... More
