Make your plans now! We may have been limited to what we could do during the last year, no one told erosion it had to stop because there was a virus and we are finding more trails created by those that think they can go wherever they want. That along with the greater number of people going outside once the park did open has resulted a lot of opportunities for trail maintenance.

There are 20+ miles of trails that had 2,356,401 visitors in 2020 even with the park closed for about 8 weeks due to the pandemic. If you have not taken part in this event before you will be able to look back at what we have accomplished knowing you have contributed the trails at KMNBP better for those hiking them.


We will be replacing stack fence, restacking fence, and in two places adding new sections of fence starting above Fire Road to the Upper Parking Lot amd working up the mountain until we run out of time. We may also depending on the number of voluteers and temperature do erosion control up to the switchback on Fire Road. One group may work on an invasive species (garlic mustard) removal, details are still being discussed.



We will stay together working as a group & follow the instructions of our Crew Leader(s) of which you will be assigned to my group. We will learn the procedures of how to make our trails better for today & for the future. 

If we have more than 6 sign up, I have the authority to increase this to all that sign up. There will be no waiting list for this event.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

From Marietta: 

 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 turn left at the redlight and park in the main visitor center lot if you can.  If full head back out to Old 41, take a left and park in the overflow parking lot farther down the road on the left.


PARKING PASSES:  Parking passes will be issued to volunteers at the time they arrive. Someone will direct you as to where to park. The present plan has volunteers parking in the field next to the parking lot. This may change depending on the weather occuring in the days before the event.
