Itinerary:

Please arrive by 8:20am.  We will start promptly at 8:30am.

We are STARTING IN THE BACK OF THE OVERFLOW PARKING LOT, and will stop at the restroom at the visitor center.

We will hike to the top of Kennesaw Mountain. From there, we will head across Little Kennesaw Mountain, cross Burnt Hickory Road for a short break before going back up and over the mountain, past the visitors center and back to the overflow parking lot.

Go at your own pace if you'd like on this hike.  Your trip leaders will wait for everyone at Burnt Hickory and again at the finish, but feel free to set your own pace that's comfortable for you.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

1) I-75 North to exit 267B Hwy 5 Canton Road Connector

2) If you are not heading west after getting off of the Interstate you are going the wrong way.  You should be heading towards US 41 and downtown Marietta after getting off of I-75 onto the Canton Road Connector and see Kennesaw Mountain on your right.

3) You will be tempted to take the first exit off of the Canton Road Connector which is US 41, but do not take it.  Proceed over US 41 on a bridge staying on the Canton Road Connector.

4) After crossing US 41 take a right at the first redlight which is Church Street Extension.

5) You should cross railroad tracks soon.

6) Take a left onto Old 41 at the second redlight.  If you get to US 41 again, you have missed the turn onto Old 41 so turn around.

7)  Park in the overflow parking lot farther down the road on the left.
