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.

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.

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.

Fun trail to run on!

Fun trail to run on!

Beautiful trail!

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.
