Join me Sunday morning for a hike at Kennesaw Mountain National Park.
Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is a 2,923 acre National Battlefield that preserves a Civil War battleground of the Atlanta Campaign.
This hike accommodates the experienced D3 hiker who wants to step it up and gain some hiking experience at the D4 level and the fast hiker who wants to get in his morning work-out.
Since I am still recovering from an injury, I will hike at a slow to moderate level. So this will be more of a self-paced hike. The group will spread out depending on the experience level and the speed of the individual hiker. So you can walk with the group, a fellow hiker, or by yourself. However, if you sign up, you should be comfortable to hike at a moderate pace and complete the hike within the time specified (3.0 hrs). If during the hike you feel you cannot complete the total 6 mile hike, you are welcome to turn around and return to the visitor's center. Just let me know.
We will start at the Visitor's Center and hike across Big and Little Kennesaw Mountains down to Burnt Hickory Road. There, you have a chance for a short rest and to get a drink from the water fountain before starting the return hike to the Visitor's Center.
Please arrive with enough time to account for possibly having to park at the big parking lot or get you parking pass. It takes about 10-12 minutes to walk from the big parking lot to the visitor's center. We will start the hike on time.
The AOC adheres to COVID guidelines so please be mindful and keep the required distance to your fellow hikers. Also, a mask is required inside the visitor's center and anytime you cannot keep the required distance.
|How to Get There:|
Directions and Parking:
1) I-75 North to exit 267B Hwy 5 Canton Road Connector
There is a $5.00 parking fee
Please make sure that you have ample time to walk from the overflow parking lot to the visitor's center (8 min) in order to be on time for the hike. We will not wait for latecomers, but call me in case you encounter troubles finding a parking spot.
Bathroom facilities are available at the visitor's center which opens the outer doors at 7:30
