This is an invigorating 7-mile loop hike at Kennesaw Mountain, starting and ending at the visitors center. We'll cross the mountain at the beginning, getting the hardest part out of the way early, and then take the New Salem Church Trail to the Camp Brumby Trail that winds around the mountain.

This event is rated a D3. Elevation gain will be in excess of 1,000 feet, and our moving pace will be brisk but not brutal at 2.5-3 mph on average. We'll try to stay together on the hike.
