Itinerary:

Please join us for a morning fitness hike at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park.

We will meet at the visitor center. Our route will NOT go over the mountains.

We will start from the visitor center and follow the east side of the mountain foothill via Cutoff Trail, Camp Brumby Trail, Pigeon Hill Cutoff Trail, Pigeon Hill Trail, cross Burnt Hickory Road, Noses Creek Trail until we reach 3.3 miles one way. We will take a short break then turn around and follow the same route back to the visitor center. There are a few hills along this route but nothing strenuous.

This is a fitness hike at a fast pace. We will only take one short water break at the half-way turn around point.

Please arrive 10 to 15 minutes before our starting time for restroom, walk from the overflow parking lot, and introduction. If you have to park at the overflow parking lot on Old HWY 41, you will need at least 5 more minutes to walk from there to the visitor center.


Required Items to Bring:

Good hiking boots/shoes

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

Water

Rain gear just in case

 


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 traffic light which is Church Street Extension.

5) You should cross railroad tracks soon.

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

7) Stay on Old US 41 until you pass in front of the mountain then turn left at the traffic light and park in the main visitor center lot if you can.  If full head back out to Old 41, take a left and park in the overflow parking lot farther down the road on the left.
