This is a group hiking event, NOT a go at your own pace event. Please only register if you can keep up with the group and finish in 4 hours. We will be hiking at a moderate pace averaging 2.5 mph, and everyone is expected to keep up with the group.
We'll meet at the Visitor Center. We’ll go 2 rounds and over the Kennesaw Mountains 4 times for a total of 10.25 miles and approx. 3,000 feet elevation gain.
Please arrive a little earlier than our starting time for getting ready and introduction. If you have to park at the overflow parking lot on Old HWY 41, you will need additional 5 to 10 more minutes to walk from there to the Visitor Center.
<<< 10.25 miles/4 hours: 2.5 mph Moderate Pace >>>
We’ll cover 10.25 miles in 4 hours with approx. 3,000 feet climbing to achieve a moderate pace of 2.5 mph. This is an entry level D5.
We also use 2.5 mph as a targeted moderate pace in the remote mountains environment. This Kennesaw Mt. 10+ miles/4 hours is a very useful reference.
<<< Entrance Fee >>>
Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park has implemented a new cashless entrance fee program, applicable at all parking lots within park boundaries, beginning Nov. 13, 2019. Entrance fees are: $5 daily, $40 annual. Interagency Passes will be available for purchase, and are valid as an entrance pass.
Passes may be purchased online through recreation.gov (beginning Nov. 8, 2019) and at the Visitor Center (beginning Nov. 13, 2019). This is an entrance fee, not a parking fee. Parking is not guaranteed. Entrance fee is per car, not per person. Federal National Park pass is also acceptable.
During closure of Visitor Center, you have to buy a pass online at the link below before the hike. You won't be able to buy one at the parking lot.
An annual pass is a great way to motivate oneself to keep coming back and enjoy all of the National Recreation Area parks and national parks throughout the USA. It is more convenient and very cost effective.
