If you are comfortable on many of the AOC D2s then come join me for a little challenge. We will stay within a D2 hike but push the elevation just a little this week. If you've ever wanted to challenge yourself or take a hike to the top of Kennesaw Mountain but all the events were just too difficult for you, this is your event.
Take your own pace to the top of Kennesaw Mountain where we will regroup. It's roughly 1.2 miles to the top and around 650 ft of elevation. Reach a new goal and take in the great view from the top. On the way back down we'll head off on a side trail and pick up some milage along the bottom of the mountain before returning to the visitors center.
Please arrive by 9:20 am at the Visitor Center by the cannon, just outside the lobby, for chicek-in. Allow extra time for parking. The Visitor Center lot tends to fill up completely throughout the day. If the Visitor Center parking lot is full turn RIGHT out of the parking lot back onto Old Stilesboro Road. Go to the traffic light and turn LEFT onto Old Hwy 41. The overflow parking lot is about 1/4 mile past the traffic light on Old Hwy 41 on the left. Allow an extra 10-15 minutes to park there and wallk to the Visitor Center.
There are restrooms at the Visitor Center, so by arriving early, you'll have time to use them.
