Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is a 2,965 acre National Battlefield that preserves a Civil War battleground of the Atlanta Campaign. Opposing forces maneuvered and fought here from June 19, 1864 until July 2, 1864. Although most famous as a Civil War battlefield, Kennesaw Mountain has a much richer story.

My whole family enjoys this trail from age 6 thru 60.

Flat and boring.. great if you want a few minuets of exercise or have children with you.

Beautiful day for a hike!

Very familiar with this trail. Moderate hiking, and very pretty views. It's popular so you can see a lot of foot traffic. There are a lot of nice nooks here and there that are nice to stop at and take in the environment.

Took this trail many times while living in the area. Easy to moderate hiking. Very nice.

Loved that it had challenging parts, wildlife (I saw a bunch of deer, big birds, lizards, & squirrels), and filled with history. First part of trail up to the peak is very busy, but after that it was peaceful and only saw a handful of people at most.

Great trail! The only reason I don't give it a 5 star is because of all the other amazing trails Georgia has to offer. This one doesn't even compare to some other ones I hiked when I was there this summer.

Favorite hike in Atlanta. Little Kennesaw Mountain is the best stretch of trail. The mile from the Visitors Center to the top of Kennesaw Mountain is the very crowded, especially on the weekends.

We took the Red trail. Trails are well-marked and well cared for. There are some rocky areas to navigate but the trail was wonderful! Take water with you because there are no water sources on the trail.

I grew up hiking this trail before there was a visitor center or parking lot. We literally parked on the side of the road and headed up it! I couldn't wait to take my children up to sit on the cannons (which are still there, but fenced longer allowed to sit on them!). It is a moderate hike, but the views from up top are worth it. The history there is so important too. It was a major battlefield/site during the civil war. Great family outing and hike!
