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.

This trail is only "hard" if you desire to go to the top of the mountain. There are multiple trails that qualify in all categories here.

Hard. Very hard. Not sugar coating it for you. I walked from pigeon Hill to big kennesaw and it was 3.34 miles. It was a lot of straight up hill and rocks.
Bring bug spray and a lot of water. I thought I was in okay shape, but that quickly changed my thinking.

I like to take Pigeon Hill to top of Big Kennesaw, down to visitor center, then back. Great workout.

I'm a beginner and I think that this trail was a great one to start out with. It can get steep at times and the rocks give it a little bit of a workout, but there are a lot of benches if you need a rest. I also saw a deer on the trail and the view from the top is cool.
