great hike with some good views

10.7 miles? Maybe around 16 according to mile marker signs

Great family trail,a bit steep at times but overall very manageable, our 8 year old loved it ! Our 12 year old not so much but made it to the top! We are coming back!

Great views. Trail groomed but somewhat difficult and made for a good workout. Loved the history including the battlefield cannons!

Great day hike, challenging climb with great views at the top! Kids loved it!

I hike this trail every day after work. It’s a great workout and is well traveled.

Nice hike. Mostly in the shade. Better views in the fall

I like to do this one every other week. For me it’s not very difficult, but, for a first time hiker, I can imagine that it would be a little more difficult. Very nice beautiful views, and, not usually too busy during the week. Not terribly far from Atlanta, and is worth the drive. Weekends, it’s always crowded, but, don’t let that deter you, this is definitely one worth going to.

My calves were killing me going up

This is my go to place to hike and I love it have been coming here for years there’s different options you can take which range from easier to more difficult. If I had to complain about anything it would be from people leaving trash on the trails why can’t people just pick up after themselves. The visitor center is also worth a look at some good history there.

Best trail at Kennesaw Mtn!! Lots of gain in altitude over the 1.8 miles from the parking lot on Burnt Hickory to the top of Kennesaw Mtn. My family and I love the trail due to the natural terrain, which means there are parts not well marked so you need to pay attention.

Not a hard hike. Good view of town from the top and the vantage point. A lot of history here. I'd say it's easy to moderate.

Good trail through the trees with steep incline and city views. You can also opt for the road all the way up - great views over park area and city; has more of a gradual incline. Two or three points from the road where you can connect onto the nature trail. Stays consistently busy - “lightly moderate”, depending on the time.

Great trail, hirstorical markers and great views. Got my geeky history fix as well as a great hike.

nice history and view

Great hike, quite scenic but also quite busy on the trail around the visitor’s center. A little bit of confusion at the top so maybe a few more trail markers but I would definitely recommend.

There are many trails of many varying distances and difficulty levels throughout Kennesaw Mtn trail network. I go regularly and have not tired of it three years on. I enjoy taking friends and family who visit the area, as it is often their favorite activity that we do in the NW burbs. Definitely some challenging stretches. TAKE WATER.

Mostly foggy and Rain. Passing front, dropping temperatures to Mid 50's.

Foggy and misty.

Good trail to hike with inclines that are challenging though not too long. Many rocks make foot placement awareness a must! Hike on!!!

Should be higher than moderate

Great hike! As others say it’s more challenging than some other “moderate” hikes with a decent amount of incline and rocky paths. Most of the challenge is front loaded, assuming you choose to start straight up Pigeon Hill (clockwise on this map). Also worth noting the visitors center with restrooms is about 3.5 miles in. It is on the more crowded side, so if being alone on the trail is your thing, then this one isn’t for you.

If anyone knows who the Boy Scout troop on Springer Mnt was yesterday (Feb 24, 2018) please contact me ASAP at email yirkl@yahoo.com

These guys assisted local EMS on an unfortunate event that happened on Springer and need to be recognized. Thanks to anyone that can help with this!

One of my favorite hikes I have done! Definitely would rate it hard

Nice trail. Well marked, clean and easy to follow. Couple of views from Springer Mountain summit and a few along the way. Long Creek Falls is a good side trip just a mile up the trail from the service road trailhead.

great trail and hike. peaceful..

Beautiful and peaceful.
