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

First mile is the hardest and then it gets easier as you go. Bring plenty of water if going in the summer.

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.

Great hike. Not very long, but it's steep enough to give you a real workout. Amazing views from the top. Popular but not overcrowded. Nicely shaded on a hot afternoon.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Relatively flat with only one area that will make you breathe very hard. Does not contain many roots or rocks that can twist ankles. Not a very scenic route but the length makes it very nice for getting in shape.

great hike, challenging !

Awesome view, saw deer. Strenuous, but short

It’s 5 stars because of the views from the top. Moderately steep incline, but well worth the hike.

Beautiful hike! The first mile was the most difficult, to me.

Some stretches are great but about half of it is too rough of terrain or too steep to run. Very scenic. Much better for hiking.

Easy, meandering, well-groomed, great for kids and dogs. The canons at the end are kind of cool. This is the trail 50% of the folks who are struggling up the mountain ought to do a few times before they tackle the difficult one across the parking lot, but it’s definitely not obvious it’s there.

I thoroughly enjoyed my hike on an early morning to the top of the mountain. Great elevation climb. Lots of people looking for fitness. Cool view at the top. Not the most "in nature" gorgeous hike but the overall experience was a 5 star for me. Would suggest for anyone to arrive early so they can find parking.
