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.

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.

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 :)

Wanted something to do on a Saturday of a business stay-amazing nature and views and great workout! Parked in the overflow parking area and Walked/jogged/claimed the northern section. On Sunday found the parking lot for the central section. Beautiful trail as well!

My favorite hiking spot... It’s easy to get to and a hike you can quickly get used to. If you’re a beginner or expert, this is a great hike. Oh... everyone is friendly too!

This is a terrific hike up to the top of Kennesaw Mountain. Very nicely laid out with well tendered paths. It can be a little tough as you get to the top but if you take it slowly and are in reasonable shape it's not...More
