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.

Loved it! We had the kids and it was a little difficult for them..... But they pushed through! We will be coming back very soon!

Starting at Pigeon Hill and ascending he twin peaks of Kennesaw Mountain, the the sharp descent back to the Visitor's Center and a pleasant walk/hike back on the East Trail makes for a very nice hike.

Good local trail for staying in shape or conditioning for bigger hikes in north Georgia. Expect a lot of foot traffic.

A great after work hike. Usually more traffic until you get to "Little Kennesaw Mt," after that it tends to get a little more quiet. Great to use for training for longer treks. It's nice to take a rest at pigeon hill, very serene. Lots of awesome history, too.

I loved it! I was very happy to have my light walking stick (heavy trail sticks not needed for this hike) the views were very nice and I met very nice people along the way. As far as the terrain it could be difficult if you decide to take the pigeon hill trail to the top of the mountain there are quite a lot of rocks and a moderate elevation if you are not in shape or not prepared it could be tough going. The only complaint is that the signage was terrible I mean basically non existent. I saw a lot of folks not aware of which trail they were on or where they should go. I would highly recommend this hike if your ever in Marietta :)
