Kennesaw seems to have two sorts of visitors -- Civil War buffs like us and all the fitness types out on its many trails. Either way, this site is worth at least four hours to visit the helpful Visitors Center and tour the museum there, drive up to and walk the peak, and to drive to the various battle sites... More

Going to Kennesaw Mt National Battlefield Park was a deeply moving experience for me. My gt grandfather was with Co F, 86th Reg, Illinois Vol Infantry. He was with Col Dan McCook's Brigade at the "Dead Angle" where apx 3.000 Federal troops were killed charging up Cheatham's Hill. Luckily, my gt grandfather survived. His Reg started the Kennesaw Memorial Association... More

I saw this hill and immediately regretted I left my bike home. It's about a mile long climb with what seems to be about 7% average grade, and it seems to be a Mecca for local cyclists. I've seen a lot of people walking up the road, and of course you can drive up there. There is a great little... More

This was definitely a great place to hike. You will get to witness deer as you climb to the peak of the mountain and it is definitely a great work out. The views from the top are also lovely.

Key conflict in the critical Battle for Atlanta. Great visitors center with very good 30 minute movie overview. Start your tour at the Visitors Center, then drive up to the mountain top (free during week, $3 per person by bus on weekend). Be sure to visit the other battlefield sites from the conflict but if you have to pick just... More

Great hiking,gorgeous views, hiking was very easy and peaceful. All the facilities were clean and we'll kept. History all over with signs and museum. You could spend the day here just wandering about. We came in the afternoon and it was absolutely amazing outside. You can bring your doggies too!! Downfall-it is crowded and parking is pretty annoying.

in the heart of Metropolitan Atlanta, GA. KEMO was the last stop in General Sherman's March on Atlanta in the spring and summer of 1864. It's easy to get there to study the history, or just to get out in nature for a few hours from almost anywhere in North Georgia.

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
