Did the "red" Kennesaw Mtn Trail (~5.6 mi loop). The highly technical parts are challenging and fun. Great elev change on the mountain portion, obviously. The backside portion (final 2.5 or so) was super easy and kinda boring. I recommend running this loop once, taking your time to stop at the historical markers, cannon emplacements, and the awesome overlooks. Then, run it again w/whatever intensity you want or need. Practice your footing techniques, particularly on the downhills.
This trail has the look and feel of being somewhere other-worldly. Spanish moss draping everywhere, large palms and humid air. The walk/hike is easy and the flora and fauna are incredibly lush and diverse. I'm pretty sure the Tree of Life resides here, along the water. It's roots twisting and weaving with lizards scurrying about! A must to experience if you're in the area!!
Completed the Coosa Back Country trail today as a day hike. The trail is very tough with intense ascents. There were still plenty of leaves on the trees, so the views were not as great as I had expected. This was a good workout - I'll be going back to do it again soon.
