Sat, May 28 2022 - Kennesaw Mountain Visitor Center to Burnt Hickory Loop (View Original Event Details)|
Nine hikers met at the KM visitor's center at 8am and nine hikers made it back shortly after 10:30 without the need for emergency medical assistance anywhere along the way. The weather on the mountain today was exactly what I had ordered. Sunny, but the trails were still in the shade since we started at 8am. Low humidity and a nice breeze meant that after we topped the peaks the second half of the hike didn't even have us sweating. 5 ⭐'s for the weather fairy.
According to Alltrails we completed 6.93 miles with an elevation gain of 1243 ft and moving time of 2h 23m. We took a few short stops along the way to regroup as needed.
Thanks to everyone for coming out and enjoying the beautiful morning with me and for making my first TL experience a positive one. I have a couple of take aways from the TL perspective already and look forward to hiking with all of you down the trail.
Also, special thanks to Joyce and Lee for the photos they took along the way. Here's a link to the album.
