But...you need to turn around at point where you head down to loop back around. At the bottom of steep rocky hillside is a down tree blocking path. Plus the wood post that should have sign is missing its sign (first clue that this path is non functioning). But the trail of rocks is beautiful, magical, and makes you feel childlike.

Great hard trail. Wouldn’t suggest dogs unless they are good at rock scaling or just want to stay on lower trails

Fantastic run and elevation training! I wish I had started earlier because it was quite hot by the time I ended but the crowd wasn't hard to navigate. Can't wait to go back. Xx

Beautiful views! Nice challenging trail. First two miles is all incline. I started from Pigeon Hill Trail off of Burnt Hickory Road.

Relatively short and easy to moderate hike that offers good views of Atlanta at the top. The trail itself is well marked and clean. It is steep at times and has a few switchbacks, but nothing too crazy. The observation deck at the top is nice, but there are so many trees that views of Buckhead and Atlanta are somewhat obstructed.

Parking can be a challenge on weekends--either circle through the lot and wait for someone to leave or park about half a mile away at the overflow lot.

Love it.

Great trails for running and hiking.

Fantastic trail for in town. Best time to hike is during the week to avoid the throngs of people on the weekend. Challenging sections exist.

Take a lite lunch up top, and enjoy the view.

enjoy this loop. Will incorporate some cut-off trails to legnthen.

nice and cool this morning , perfect trekking weather.

Difficult but not long. Rocky and some steps. You can take the park road back down or the trail.

Great loop for hiking and running!

Good trail! Short and easy.

Very busy on the weekends so get there early

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

awesome

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.

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
