It's a mid week hike/power hike at Kennesaw Mountain! My plan is for a fast pace and even run some, but all are welcome. Come join us for a mid day work out!
Realize that we get very spread out. Please look over the directions below to (potentially) save yourself some time getting there.
If everyone is there early, we will move on out. Note that this is a go at your own pace (although fast) hike. Some may run at times.
After introductions (if you are new) and
a quick briefing (e.g. Go to Burnt Hickory and back, perhaps) we will
ascend the 1.2 miles to the 1808 foot top of Big Kennesaw Mountain which
is a climb of 657 feet. From there we will drop down about 500 feet to the
gap between Big Kennesaw and Little Kennesaw Mountain, up and over
the hump in the middle which is about a 20 foot climb heading towards
Little Kennesaw and about a 50 foot climb heading back, then down to the
base of Little Kennesaw. From there it's about a 300 foot climb to the top of
Little Kennesaw at 1601 feet. Then we'll head down the other side of Little
Kennesaw to Burnt Hickory for a short break (5 seconds maybe). After that
we'll head back the same way we came.
Study the map, especially if you've never been there before. We'll be going from the Visitor Center to Burnt Hickory Road on what is called the West Trail (the mountains kind of run southwest to northeast. The West Trail (the one on the west) goes over the mountains. The East Trail (the one on the east) goes around the mountains). At every fork in the trail on the way over, choose right and you'll be alright. Does anyone read the event descriptions? Haha.
If you do read the descriptions you know this is Danny's write up and his hike. Carry on.
|How to Get There:|
1) I-75 North to exit 267B Hwy 5 Canton Road Connector
VERY IMPORTANT NOTES:
* We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines while participating in AOC events.
Cancellation/Partial Attendance: Please review the AOC cancellation policy.
This is a rain or shine hike - we will hike regardless of the weather - except for thunder, tornadoes or earthquakes. No need to call or text me to see if it will be canceled. It won't be canceled due to weather for the most part. I like to hike in the rain but it seldom rains on my hikes.
