This is not my first visit to the mountain. It is such a historical place... it is hard to believe that so many people died on this mountain trying to end slavery and keep the States United. In the winter time the oak leaves are off the trees so the views are spectacular but be forewarned it is not a... More

Absolutely beautiful. The Illinois monument is awe inspiring. Miles of trails for every skill level. We have made this a weekly outing.

Kennesaw mountain is one of those resources that is not on the list of most advertised destinations. It has abundant trails and fascinating history, though. It is becoming more popular, but you can still find times when parking lots and trails are not too congested.

We are National Park Service buffs -- so this was a "must" when we were in Atlanta this past weekend -- along with MLK and Chattahoochee River. I am glad that I checked out previous reviews on here before coming and knew what to somewhat expect before arriving -- i.e. crowded parking lot, shuttle, and locals using this as their... More

This battlefield park is very well run by a professional staff of U.S. Park Rangers. The displays are quite interesting even for someone not particularly a Civil War buff. The viewing rooms are clean and well maintained. Located at the base of Kennesaw Mountain, there is a great second feature for those wanting some uphill exercise with both a paved... More

Due to us deciding late in the day to visit here, we didn't get to but scratch the surface of this historic park and site. We really enjoyed our trip up the mountain, a brief run through the museum, and an informative and moving visit to the Illinois Monument area. So much history, and all interactions w/the friendly staff were... More

We went on a weekday, so we were able to drive up the mountain. Beware, the cyclists and walkers are totally oblivious to this fact, apparently. There are actual trails but it seemed that most wanted to walk the road for some reason. It's a curvy drive up to the top, and you can park and hike further up to... More

Followed the winding road to the mountain top passed many walkers and cyclists, but it was chilly and our endurance was not up to a hike. From the parking lot there are great views of Atlanta and a short walk to the peak was easy. There were numerous cannon, historic plaques, a couple enjoying an afternoon in a hammock, plenty...

The really neat thing about this location is that you can actually see the mountain that the battle took place on!! Take the time to spend a little while there, there is lots to explore. The grandkids participated in the Junior ranger program and had lots of fun.
