Great hike - we took the trails for around 11 miles, but many shorter options are available. Saw 7 deer that were used to seeing hikers. Cool historical monuments and several Civil War battlefields, tomb of an unknown soldier, etc. In total, it took us just under 5 hours with 3 or 4 5 minute breaks on some of the tougher hills. First 8 miles were fairly easy (starting off the loop going behind the visitors center and ending at Kennesaw mtn). Last 3 miles made us understand why this trail was rated as hard. Next time we will likely do the loop in reverse and do the harder climbing first.

Parking at the trailhead can be difficult depending on time of day.
