Group hike means no one will be running ahead! 2.7 mph gradient terrain with 2.0 climbs We will start our hike at the Visitor Center.This will take us up and over Big and Little Kennesaw Mountain to Burnt Hickory Road, and returning the same way. This is a standard 6-mile out and back. Immediately after our break we will again start at the Visitor Center and hike up to Big and Little Kennesaw Mountain. This will be the third pass heading to the 2 mile mark which will give us a additional 4 miles total. To find the 2 mile mark you will be descending from the top of Little Kennesaw Mountain toward Burnt Hickory Rd, passing the French Rock mark.You will see the wooden fence to your right for the 2 mile post marker,then turn around and head back to the V/C Center. Please arrive 10 minutes early at the Visitor Center for briefing and introductions. If you are in the overflow parking which is up on old 41 highway, allow another 10 minutes for time! I will hike with most of the group throughout the time. This is a long difficult D5 hike.If you have not recently completed a few D5 hikes with the AOC, the Trip leader will likely contact you to determine your abilities for this hike.For the safety of the group, the trip later reserves the right to remove anyone they feel cannot complete this hike. Please no audible music, tree climbing or heavy perfume. I would really like to see everyone hike as a club.
|How to Get There:|
1) I-75 North to exit 267B Hwy 5 Canton Road
I will hike rain or shine if conditions are favorable! Let nature be the sounds .🙏
