Great place to see the area of Civil War conflict outside of Atlanta. You can drive or walk to the top, I've done both. Long but good walk for exercise. Actual cannons overlooking the battle field.

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.
