I gained an understanding of the significance of the Atlanta battlefield site. You can drive up the mountain and park near the top and walk the rest of the way. The path is asphalted and cracked, so be careful. If you are unstable in walking,...More

Living in the area for over 30 years I’ve run hundreds of miles here. Depending on my training I can run fast rolling hills or hard strenuous climbs. Parking at several trail heads with water fountains makes it easy to cover a lot of distance....More

Gear up, confortable shoes, I would recommend hiking boots. Water, and snacks. There are a few trails, it depends how long do you want to walk.

This is a busy park for locals to exercise, with plenty of facilities for locals and visitors alike. Shuttle to the top is convenient and staffed by volunteers. Some of the volunteers are expert historians. Always a pleasure to visit this park.

This is a beautiful and safe park as long as you stay on the trail. When the road to and from the mountain top is open to vehicle traffic it is not enforced (speeding/passing) this is an extremely dangerous area for pedestrians.

If you have even a passing interest in the civil war, choose a day with good weather to take a free hike on the "mountain" (i.e., hill), and you will enjoy this attraction. One odd thing about the free museum near the entrance is that...More

This site is a very significant place in American history and is extensively used for its scenery and hiking trails by local citizens. The park is well maintained and afforded the respect owed to those who fought and died there in 1864.

This free National Battlefield now depicts a very serene setting, very different than the summer of 1864. The visitor center is open 9-5. The center contains one of the best films ever seen at a National Battlefield. Also a very interesting museum inside. The entire...More

Went there the day before Thanksgiving. It was quite crowded. The staff was very cooperative & attentive to the kids. They made it a big deal for the kids when presenting the JR badge & my little ones felt overwhelmed :)
