For this hike we are meeting in the parking lot at the top of Kennesaw Mountain.  The plan is to hike down to Burnt Hickory and then all the way to the visitors center.  Then we can either resummit Kennesaw by the paved road or by the trail.    The descent to the visitors center will be optional depending on how much time we have.  But the idea is to see the sunset to the west of Kennesaw with all of our cars proximately in place for convenient get away.

***I would suggest for participants to plan on entering the park by 4:30 pm, and to be ready to hike at 5:00 pm or shortly there after.  This route typically takes 1 hour 30 minutes, hiking moderately.***
