This no entry fee facility was an interesting piece of civil war history. The visitor center was very clean and provides a video storyline explaining Kennesaw's place during the war. The National Park Rangers were very pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. There were also numerous artifacts...More

If you like jogging, running, bicycling, or hiking, this is the place for you. An oasis just minutes from downtown Atlanta, this is a treasure trove of Civil War history and nature married together in this spectacular site managed by the National Park Service.

Our dog's loved the hike and playing the river. It was shallow and there were nice river rocks. Great trail most of the way. Just have a little less dirt truck driving paths.

Interesting late Civil War battlefield, so close to Atlanta. Nice visitor center, with good, clean facilities. Crowded on weekends! Climb to the top in good weather, and if you can. Then explore other units of the park by car.

Make it to the top for wide ranging views, always a busy park but more so on weekends. Following the mountain trail to the top is deceptively easy at the base and a steeper gradient near the peak. Also, take breaks along the way to...More

I lived next to Kennesaw Mountain for nearly ten years. The park is very well maintained and one of the very nice things in the Emerald City. It is an enjoyable hike up the mountain, and only mildly strenuous in parts. The museum is excellent...More

15 minutes or less. If you get off at Rt. 5 it's a pretty quick trip from there. If you need directions, ask me.

That is totally up to you and how interested you are in the details. When we were there it was pouring rain so we did not drive the trail. We did spend a long time at the visitor' center. Very extensive.
