This is a part of the Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield that many people have never seen.  It's a refreshing change from the mountain climb, and less strenuous.  The trails are relatively flat compared to Big Kennesaw, Little Kennesaw and Pigeon Hill, but the distance and pace of the hike will provide a great workout.

Be sure to check directions.  You will be parking at the Cheatham Hill parking lot - - NOT at the Visitors' Center.  Be aware that there are no bathroom facilities  at this location (though there is an abundance of trees!).

Up to three dogs allowed on this hike. Park regulations require that dogs be kept on leash. Bags are provided in dispensers at the park for picking up dog droppings.

Recommended Items to Bring:
