Yes, one can hike at the Kennesaw Battlefield without climbing the mountains. This third section of the park is the least traveled, but it provides an excellent trail for moderate hiking. Our pace will be moderate (no fitness hiking, please!) to give us an opportunity to talk as we hike and stop occasionally for pictures and water. If the distance doesn't present a challenge, come join us. The terrain is varied, with undulating hills . . . but nothing seriously steep.
We will start our hike promptly at 8:00 am in the parking lot off of Dallas Highway (Whitlock Ave. if you're coming from Marietta) and hike the 5.5. mile loop trail, winding our way through a variety of landscapes that go all the way to Powder Springs Road (Kolb Farm) before beginning the second half of the loop back.
It will be warm! Be sure to bring sufficient water. Insect repellant is also a good idea.
