Itinerary:

This event is for those that want to hike Kennesaw Mountain at a slower pace.

We will start and end at the visitors center.

We will hike 1.2 miles to the 1808 foot top of Big Kennesaw Mountain which is a climb of approximately 600 feet. From there we will drop down about 500 feet to the gap between Big Kennesaw and Little Kennesaw Mountain, then up and over a small hump, heading towards Little Kennesaw. We then descend to the base of Little Kennesaw.  From there we climb around 300 feet to the top of Little Kennesaw.  Then we'll head down the other side of Little Kennesaw, cross Burnt Hickory Road, and loop back to our starting point along a rather flat side road.
