“A great hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

A nice hike up the mountain, elevation gain 1000 ft or so, past civil war monuments and historical markers. Continue across to Little Kennesaw Mountain and then curve back around on a mostly level pinestraw covered level trail to the beginning at the very enjoyable Visitor's Center.

“GREAT VALUE”

This is a great place to take visitors from out of town - Be sure to go to the top of the mountain after visiting the FREE museum. Be sure to watch the video

Nice to visit and have a picnic or a hike or whatever else you can do in the sun! Hiking up the mountain is intense and the grounds are beautiful!
