The Park is usually very steady with visitors and joggers and walkers. You can take the road to the top, you can walk the road to the top or you can hike the mountain to the top. Inside the building at the foot of the mountain you can watch a movie about the civil war and hear details of the... More

It had been some years since our last visit to this park and since we were in the area we decided to stop and see it again on a weekday. At the visitor center, you will find a museum of an adequate size relating the story of the battle at Kennesaw Mountain including what led up to the battle and... More

There are some great little Running Hiking Trails through the mountain if you decide not to stick to the main road and it really makes for a fun little Adventure. Better in the morning before it gets busy but we saw some wonderful natural wildlife and enjoyed a pretty challenging hike through the woods.

The views are beautiful as you walk the main paved trail to the top of the mountain. The visitor center has a tiny museum and maps detailing the many trails you can walk. There are several historic sites and horse trails and has picnic tables where you can stop and eat. I highly recommend it and suggest you get there... More

As others have written, yes you will work up a sweat. Park is incredibly well kept, sit down and contemplate the history and reason this park is here can pull at the heartstrings.

If you like to hike with steep inclines and great views will love walking the trails here. The mountain trail has tons of tree coverage so although it is Atlanta hot you are not getting beat up by direct sunlight. The museum is nice but is rather small as it relates to exhibits. As a Yankee disappointed that the stars... More

We hike Kennesaw Mountain at least once a month with the kids. We love how close it is to our house. We enjoy taking the trails up and the road back down. I will say you need to come early on the weekends due to how popular the mountain is. If there is any type of event going on you... More

Took our grandkids and their cousins from out of town. Enjoyed the small museum and gift shop before walking up the trail to the top. Great view of surrounding area from the top. The wooded trail is also worth seeing.

Overall a challenging, steep, rocky mile summit climb through the woods. Or drive up the mountain. Great panoramic scenery from Stone Mt. all the way around to Cartersville Ga. on a clear day. Don't forget to read all the Civil War plaques and memorabilia.

Went to Georgia to visit family. They live only about 1/2 hour away from Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield. There are many hiking trails and great visitors center. Well worth visiting if you are in the area.
