Join me at 5:00pm on Thursday afternoon to hike Kennesaw Mountain. We will hike or run your preference, to the top of big Kennesaw, then to Little Kennesaw past Pigeon Hill down toward Burnt Hickory road, 3 miles. Then turn back and head back to the Visitors Center on the route you came out on for a total of 6 miles. If there is a threat of bad weather, I will switch the course up.
Please keep in mind this is a difficult Hike with a fast moving group with lots of hills. We will get spread out, and there will be NO SWEEPER.
If you're not sure you can make the 6 miles, but want to try it - this is an OK event as long as you understand the following:
If you don't cover the whole 6 miles in 2 hours 15 minutes, 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 by 7:15pm - so no way to verify you after that. If you get there early and check in with me I will allow for you to get a head start.
|How to Get There:|
1) I-75 North to exit 267B Hwy 5 Canton Road Connector
Allow 10 minutes to walk from the new parking lot to the visitors center in the event that the main parking lot is full.
Meet prior to 5:00 PM at the cannon outside the main entrance. If you are late you will have to try and catch up with the group.
