The weather forecast shows it being a bit cooler in the morning this coming Sunday, so let's take advantage with an invigorating 7-mile loop hike at Kennesaw Mountain, starting and ending at the Pigeon Hill Parking Lot on Burnt Hickory Road. 

We'll cross the mountain at the beginning of the hike and head toward the Visitors Center, getting the hardest part out of the way early. We'll then loop around the mountain on the Camp Brumby Trail and take the New Salem Church Trail back to the parking lot.

This event is rated a D3. Elevation gain will be in excess of 1,000 feet, and our average moving pace will be brisk at about 2.75-3 mph. We'll stay together on the hike.
