How it works:  You go on the waitlist starting on January 9th at 5pm and on the 11th at 5pm, I will put on the people, not in the order of the waitlist, but in the order of fewest hikes completed.  After that it is first come, first serve - with a total of 8 hikers.

The pace of the event will be leisurely - it will only be faster if the entire group can maintain that pace.

We are STARTING IN THE BACK OF THE OVERFLOW PARKING LOT, then goes to the Visitor Center and we'll take the Brumby Trail out to the back side of Pidgeon Hill and then return the same way.  This is an undulating trail.  

Required Items to Bring:

Hiking shoes or sneakers with good tread


Park pass

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

1) I-75 North to exit 267B Hwy 5 Canton Road Connector

2) If you are not heading west after getting off of the Interstate you are going the wrong way.  You should be heading towards US 41 and downtown Marietta after getting off of I-75 onto the Canton Road Connector and see Kennesaw Mountain on your right.

3) You will be tempted to take the first exit off of the Canton Road Connector which is US 41, but do not take it.  Proceed over US 41 on a bridge staying on the Canton Road Connector.

4) After crossing US 41 take a right at the first redlight which is Church Street Extension.

5) You should cross railroad tracks soon.

6) Take a left onto Old 41 at the second redlight.  If you get to US 41 again, you have missed the turn onto Old 41 so turn around.

7) Stay on Old US 41 until you pass in front of the mountain then go through the light and the next left (past the visitor's center is the overflow parking lot.

Meet in the back of the overflow lot.
