Let's take advantage of the last cool days of Spring. We will meet at the visitor center entrance facing the parking lot. From there we will hike to the summit of Big Kennesaw Mountain then down into the saddle and back up Little Kennesaw Mountain. Then a long downhill past Pidgeon Hill brings us to the three mile marker near Burnt Hickory Road. We will hike from Burnt Hickory Road back the way we came for a double traverse of Big and Little Kennesaw Mountains. The distance is 6 miles and the total elevation gain is about 1,700 feet. Be prepared to hike alone as everyone will hike at his/her own pace and we will likely be spread out on the trail. Those unfamiliar with the trail will regroup at trail junctions and other locations where it is possible to loose the trail.
|How to Get There:|
1) I-75 North to exit 267B Hwy 5 Canton Road Connector
Allow 10 minutes to walk from the overflow parking lot to the visitors center in the event that the main parking lot is full.
