Kennesaw Mountain was designated as a National Battlefield on February 8, 1917, and it is 1,808 feet above sea level. An elevation of approximately 660 feet is gained in the one-mile hike to the top of Kennesaw Mountain, and the park offers over 18 miles of maintained interpretive trails. Be sure to grab a brochure at the visitor center.
Come join us as we climb up and over Kennesaw Mountain, Little Kennesaw Mountain, and Pigeon Hilll and return back the same way. It is a six- mile, strenuous hike at a moderate pace with only one or two rest breaks; therefore, you should be in good physical condition to attempt this hike.
We will meet outside of the visitor center for sign-in. Please allow time to find a parking space and to walk up to the visitor center, as the main parking lot may be full.
There is an OPTIONAL lunch after the hike, and the location will be announced at the end of the hike.
**Thanks to Danny Llewallyn for the map and directions listed below.
