I hope you will join me for the morning Kennesaw Mountain National Park Work Day doing trail maintenance on the Kolb Farm trail.

Come join me on a fun hike & optional early dinner!!!! This hike is a 3.0 moderate pace due to the distance in the allotted time.

Cheatham Hill / Kolb Farm Loop is relatively flat but does have some hills. The hills are not too steep nor too long. The trail meanders through the Civil War battlefield forest. We will be discovering things from the Civil War period. We might be lucky and see some deer or horses on our hike and eat some ripe blackberries.

There is NO Parking Fee

Please be sure you are capable of doing the 5.7 miles in 2.00 hours. We want to stay together as a group & have fun.

We will meet at the parking lot. There are NO restroom facilities at this location.

PLEASE arrive by 1:50 pm for socializing & introductions. Out of respect for the majority of people who arrive on time, we will leave PROMPTLY at 2:00 pm. 


Optional early dinner at the West Cobb Diner (see Notes below). The West Cobb Diner is a casual cafe dishing up classic Southern favorites & sandwiches in a low-key, relaxed atmosphere.
