Our event will start at the Pigeon Hill parking lot. ( Burnt Hickory) Head North over Pigeon Hill forward to summit both Mountains. Take a break at the Visitor Center ( bathrooms) and then carry our attention on to Ithe Environmental Trail. We will turn right to the 24 Gun Trail, crossing Old Mountain Road and then to Gilbert Road. From Gilbert we will be off the designated trails, still in the Park boundary, but on to herd paths. This will be hiker, runner, horse, or other animal paths. There will be some short meadow crossings. This is where you will see the seldom West side view of Big Kennesaw! After the view (going more South) we cross Burnt Hickory Road again.This will take us into the low bottoms of Noses Creek Tributaries where we will do a stream ford .After the ford we intersect with Hardage Mill Trail and back to the cars from Noses Creek Trail.
