My family and I visited the hiking trails. The entire area was very well kept & clean. We got see deer, wild turkey & lizards! We had a great time and plan to visit again in the future to check out the other trails that we didn't get to walk.

Now a beautiful maintained nature park. It is hard imagining the savage battle fought here without taking time to read history or really peruse the war relics. Take a good look at the weapons, the size of the bullets and imagine the damage they did to human flesh. No real flesh wounds....death or amputations of extremities for sure! Yet, men... More

Good hiking park, but most people don't use the trails and make the road hazardous. Walking up and down the mountain, visiting the visitors center for a history lesson, maybe a picnic at the top; that's the best activities here. Driving up the mountain was dangerous due to the people walking in the road. But there are no sidewalks, so... More

Great view at the top of the mountain. The visitor center was really cool and the film was outstanding. The park ranger we first dealt with was nasty but the others made up for it. Everyone has a bad day I guess. Over all really good. Drink lots of water it gets crazy hot.

This Park is always crowded. Go early to find a parking spot at the visitor center. Many locals like to hike the trails and head to the top of Kennesaw Mountain.There are several trails of various lengths so I would suggest downloading a map or get one from the Visitor Center. The longest trail is 5 miles and it's walkable... More

Great historical landmark. Great way to view history and get exercise by walking the maountain. Don't forget to have water/beverage since there is no water fountains on the mountain.

What a beautiful and amazing place. The history of the battle here was so heart renching. They have a welcome center where you can see a video of the battle. Parking and entrance is free. You can leave a donation if you like.

Kennesaw mountain national park is awesome they have picnic tables it's well maintained and the hiking trails well marked, somewhat strenuous if you haven't hiked in a while but worth it, I personally like it best during the fall however it is open later during the summer! And you just may run into "Bambi"
