This hike will be a casual hike. Hikers that are comfortable with the trail may go at their own pace. I intend to hike at a pace of about 2.5 miles an hour but I will stop several times for a quick water break for my dog Gracie. 

We will start at the Burnt Hickory Rd. parking lot. We will cross Pigeon hill, hike up Little Kennesaw Mt. to Big Kennesaw Mt. and then down to the Visitors Center for a short break. We will return back the way we came. The total hiking distance is 6 miles. 


Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time for parking.
