Welcome to a Kennesaw Mountain hike for those that want to do the Kennesaw Mountain D4 at a slow pace. I had several members tell me that they wanted to do the trail up Kennesaw Mountain and even the 6.2-mile round trip, however they needed it to be slow. This is a hike those of you that want to do this hike. It is scheduled to last 3.5 hours. An Advanced Warning – It May Last a Little Longer. We will go at a leisurely pace keeping the group together. This is a leisurely hike for beginners; however, it is Kennesaw Mountain and is a D4. Those wanting a fast hike, this is not for you.


That said the plan for this hike is: We will meet at the Burnt Hickory Parking Lot at 8:00 am. There are no restrooms at this parking lot. After introductions we head up than down Little Kennesaw. Up than down (Big) Kennesaw stopping for a break at the Visitor Center with restrooms. As soon as everyone is ready, we will head back to the Burnt Hickory Parking Lot reversing the route we came from.
