Variety of fun on this trail! My only complaints are: 1) the amount of traffic in beginning (starting from Visitor Center side); and 2) it was slightly confusing as to which way the trail led at the top of the mountain. We found out way with the help of another hiker. Other than that, this trail was packed with elevation climbs, beautiful views of the distant city, and awesome rock formations. As a hiking rookie, I would call this is a moderate/difficult hike. However, we brought our dog and he led the way the whole time! Will definitely visit this trail again.

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!!!

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.

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

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 trail and hike. peaceful..

Beautiful and peaceful.

my favourite Kennesaw Mt. trail.

great hike, challenging !

Great hike. Challenging with a nice view payoff. Bring water, apples, and cheese ;)

Great trail with awesome viewing spots.

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.

This a great moderate hike and possibly easy for those looking for this sort of distance. The mountain ( and I use that term loosely) is full of switchbacks making it a short moderate climb and the back side return is hilly fire roads. The only downfall is the amount of people, tons of traffic at the start and finish.

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.

Good hike, if you have knee or ankle issues, walking poles will help. Great view from the top.

quick and beautiful hike, nice views, especially on a clear day being able to see Atlanta sky line

Very easy hike for most of the way, a little challenging at top. Would rate this hike moderate not hard. But nice trail.

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.

Great trail

I love this mountain. You can come and spend 8 hours here!

Having this Mountain so close by I love the little Kennesaw trail leading to the loop trail. Some difficult sections of rock and sand/mud depending on when you hike, it's a mid strenuous trek but worth it. Bring water*

I did not go all the way through but the civil ear leftovers up to the top on the trails was fun sightings.
