Well finally we have perfect hiking weather for our hike entirely around Kennesaw Mountain.  We started by climbing Pigeon Hill, then off to the Brumby trail.  On the way to the visitors center, we stopped briefly at the site of the old CCC camp and also on the Picket Line trail and learned a little about the history of these sites. 

After a brief break at the visitors center, we headed out the 24 gun trail.  Next, we entered the "Big Field" and hiked across the rolling hills on the way to Burnt Hickory Rd.  After taking our lives in our hands getting across Burnt Hickory, we headed out an old fire road and then used a horse trail to reach the Hardage Trail back to the parking lot.  We finished our 7.5 mile hike in a little under 3 hours.  ~ Holt
