great hike with some good views

great hike and lots of civil war history

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 hike. Not to hilly, just long enough to do the trick. Cant’t wait to come back!

it was a uphill battle

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

Really enjoyed this trail. A number of nice elevation changes. Quite a bit of wildlife. Looking forward to running it again.

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

Nice wide trail. Mostly wooded. Small grades as well as short steam manageable hills. I travel a lot and wherever i go i turn on AllTrails to find new off road adventures and get in a good run.

This was an enjoyable run which i tried to do 5 miles in 50 minutes. Unfortunately, I got a little lost and ran 7 in 71 minutes.

This is also a horse trail so what out for the manure.

Nice, easy walk. Mostly shaded but there another of locations with numerous rocks so watch your step.

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

Great trail, but it does run parallel to a busy road at one point so you don’t get a complete separation from man-made noise.

Several cars have been broken into at this trail. We found out because our vehicle was stolen and 4 other cars were broken into at the same time. The police and rangers said burglaries at the Kennesaw mountain trails are common. But yet they don’t have any officers patrolling the parking lots.

Great trail, historical markers, and spots for photos. A short easy hike but fun with family

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.

Love this trail. Nicely shaded and peaceful. Not too many inclines, and most are gentle. Well marked with a lot to see. Not too crowded either.

Great trail for a scenic, but not necessarily strenuous, hike. Very peaceful with lots of wildlife.

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.

Nice 11 mile hike in the metro ATL area. Mostly shaded. The ascent of Kennesaw Mtn. is an easier approach from the visitors center, as the trail is wider and mostly improved, but also more heavily trafficked. East trail is mostly rolling hills and relatively easy.

The traffic noise is a little annoying sometimes but the trail itself is great! I run it frequently!

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.
