We enjoyed ourselves today. Just happen to visit while they had the war reenactment happening. We walked the hiking trail up the mountain. Strenuous hike if you are not a usual hiker.

The National Park Service has done a great job of keeping this as a world class area. There is ample parking. The paths are excellent and the earthworks are exemplary. It is a good idea to take a camelback with you. Georgia in the summer...More

Great place for a casual walk or a heart raising climb or run. Parking tight at the base but ample parking just down the road. Only draw back is you cant fly a kite

Getting there is easy. The parking lot has limited parking. Come early! I came around 9:30 am. You have easy access to the visitor's center. I'm quite surprise that Kennesaw Mountain is not a state park. On top of that, I'm surprised that it is...More

Miles and miles of trails to explore. Parking can be a bit busy so get there early and try one of the lots that is not near the visitors center.

The walk up the mountain was fun. (A bit steeper than I expected) You can use the trail or the road. We were disappointed in the fact that vehicles are allowed to the the top as well. Lots of cars passing as you are trying...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.
