This event is rated D5 for elevation gain, distance, and pace. It requires recent AOC D4/D5 experience to participate.
Please join me for a unique hike at Kennesaw Mountain.
We'll do the standard out and back over the mountain but add a complete loop of the park's central section plus a foray to the Illinois Monument in the park's southern section, giving us about 12 miles and 2,700 feet of elevation gain.
This is an easier D5 in a populated in-town location, so it may be ideal for someone looking to step-up from a D4 to a D5. We'll aim for an overall pace of 2.5mph, so we'll be moving at upwards of 3mph or so at times.
This is NOT a self-paced hike, we'll hike as group.
|How to Get There:|
We'll meet at the Kennesaw Mountain Visitor Center, located at 900 Kennesaw Mountain Dr, Kennesaw, GA 30188. (The visitor center is near the intersection of Old Highway 41 NW and Stilesboro Road NW.)
Please plan to arrive a little early in case the visitor center lot is full and you need to park at the overflow lot located a short distance away at 1200 Old Highway 41 NW.
Parking at Kennesaw Mountain is $5 per verhicle or a valid pass.
* We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines while participating in AOC events.
Cancellation/Partial Attendance: Please review the AOC cancellation policy.
If the weather forecast shows a strong likelihood of rain, I'll likely reschedule the hike for another day.
