You've worked all day and now you need some O/T to get the blood flowing again.  This will be a fast paced 5 mile fitness hike at Kennesaw Mountain to help you forget all about your real j-o-b at least for a minute.  

This is not a beginner's hike.  While this is a short D3 hike, the pace will be faster than most.  I have listed it as D3 based on the elevation and pace.  If you are concerned that you may not be able to keep up there are other hikes that may be more appropriate for you.  

We will meet outside the visitor center and head straight up and over Big KM and Little KM.  At 2.5 miles we will regroup as needed and then return to the visitor center the way we came in.  

Our target pace will be 3.0 mph so bring water that you can drink on the go.  Our goal is to cover the ~5 miles with 1350 ft of elevation gain and be back to the parking lot by 7:30.  Sunset is at 7:34.  

If the main parking lot is full there is an overflow lot on Old Hwy 41 appx 1/4 mile away.  Allow extra time to park in the overflow if needed. There is a $5 parking fee required if you don't have an annual pass.  The fee can be paid ahead of time at or at the visitor center. 


Required Items to Bring:

Hiking shoes or trail runners
Water or electrolyte drink
Flashlight just in case
