Come join us for an (almost) double dose of Kennesaw Mountain!
We'll start at the visitor's center, go over big Kennesaw, little Kennesaw, Pigeon Hill and down to Burnt Hickory Rd, take a water break then head back to the visitor's center for another water break. Then we'll go back over Big and Little Kennesaw to the 2.0 mile marker, turn around and head back to the visitor's center. There is about 2700 ft of elevation gain on this hike which makes it (along with the 10 miles) a beginning D5 hike.
If you're not sure you can make the 10 miles, but want to try it - this is an OK event as long as you understand the following:
1. If you don't cover the whole 10 in 4 hours, you'll be removed from the event - BUT THERE IS NO SHAME IN TRYING - so don't let this stop you. Your trip leader has to leave at 10:30am - so no way to verify you after that.
2. You may not have someone with you all the time during the hike, but it's nearly impossible to get lost once you've completed the route over the mountain the first time. I will be checking in with everyone as we pass on the mountain and you can ALWAYS sit and take a break on a few benches along the way.
There are water fountains available at the vistor's center and at Burnt Hickory Rd.
