“Great Hiking Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Great place for Hiking and you have to stop by the museum and learn the history of the place. You can pick the paved road to walk to the top but you must the the dirt trail. It is an awesome place, Wild life show up every now and is a nice experience!

“A peep into history !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

I love this mountain which gives a peep into history and also a scenic place to have an aerial view of Atlanta ! It has a mini theater and museum where one can feel the last important war history ! Admission is free and on the week ends there is a bus ride up the hill !

“Nice trail for a long walk, if you are interested”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

The part of the park that we went to was pretty much just a walking trail in a very large field. Not bad if you are interested in walking the fields where the battles took place or just looking for a place to take a long walk or run.

“Worth the time to visit this historical Civil War site.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

I live nearby and have been here many, many times. 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 Battle of Kennesaw Mountain. There is also a nice museum/visitor's center on the property and picnic tables for eating/resting or just throw down a blanket on the large lawn area adjacent to the museum. Your dog(s) will love this park too! Parking can be at a premium on weekends, but they have added additional parking lots now.

“Beautiful Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

17.3 miles of walking trails, with historic earthworks and cannon emplacements. 3 monuments representing some of the states who fought here. Took the 1.2 mile 700-foot incline trail from the Visitor Center to the mountain's summit, decided to take the road back down,approximately 1.4 miles, Parking was full and when I returned from my walk the overflow lot was nearly full as well
