A little boring. Kenesaw Mtn is more my speed and terrain.

My daily trail. Run this one in reverse for a bit more challenge.

Easy trail! Well maintained. Didn't prepare for so much sunny open meadow areas. Wear sunscreen! Lots of horse dung so watch where you walk. 2 nice historic spots.

Nice trails, well marked with points of interest. There was more gravel than I expected, and my barefoot horse was feeling it on the way back. Shoes or boots highly reccomended. There are several creek crossings with opportunities to drink, bridges if you do not want to go through the water. Runners, hikers and dogs on leashes share the trail. Everyone was very kind, but not everyone knows to speak when they see horses, so lead by example. Trailer parking is a U shape pull through, 10-12 spots only. No water at trailer parking.

This is a nice hike that is just over five miles. It is relatively flat with just a few inclines. You will normally see a lot of deer on this hike.

It was a pleasant hike for the sections that didn’t run next to the main road or through a private house’s backyard. It’s easy to get a bit turned around if you are following the loop, as most of the signs just say the east or west trail. Be sure to watch your step, there is quite a bit of horse droppings on the trail. Positive note is I did see some wildlife along the way.

A nice trail that can be completed in about an hour and a half with a slow to moderate pace. nice scenery with historic markings of Union and Confederate during the civil war. Part of the Kennesaw Mountain park system. Decent uphill climbs and downhills. A fun moderate trail that's worth your while.

This was a nice walk. There are a couple of gradual uphills, but nothing too major. I gave it a 4/5 only because some of the trail runs really close to the main road and the road noise reminds you that you're still in the city. Once that point is passed, the trail becomes a lot quieter. Kolb's Farm Loop is also not as crowded as the other trails Kennesaw Mountain offers. I will definitely do this hike again when I don't want to do the walk up the mountain.

Pretty easy overall, secluded amid tall trees. Weaves a bit around residential areas but you won’t mind.

Nice trail. I do this one in reverse for a bit more of a challenge. not nearly as crowded or Rocky as the kenessaw mountain trail. I do this one in about 100 minutes, and I am a Huffer and puffer.

Trails are not clearly marked on the maps, and the maps were of little help and confusing. Lots of standing water post rain so don’t go in the summertime after rain because of mosquitoes. Saw a lot of beautiful deers and heard owls close to sunset.

This is my favorite loop I've found so far! Not insanely difficult but you'll feel like you did some good work after it. Love it!

Nice wide trail. Mostly wooded. Small grades as well as short steam manageable hills. I travel a lot and wherever i go i turn on AllTrails to find new off road adventures and get in a good run. This was an enjoyable run which i tried to do 5 miles in 50 minutes. Unfortunately, I got a little lost and ran 7 in 71 minutes. This is also a horse trail so what out for the manure.

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.

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.

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.

Nice balance of incline and flat running areas. Spotted some birds and a Doe with her baby. Watch out for horse poop!

Great loop for a morning outing. Completed in a little under 2 hrs. Not major scenery but some good historic spot(s).

Very flat and simple trail. Not too hilly but a good distance. The trail is well marked, I always start the trail at the parking lot on Cheatam Hill road. It's never extremely busy! You can extend the trail loop by crossing the street as well

This is an excellent loop for a nice walk with the dog. I take my dog here often, generally parking at Cheatham Hill and making the loop from there. Nice 5 mile walk. We often extend it to seven by connecting to the Cheatham Hill trail at the Illinois Monument. The East section that runs along the creek is my favorite. Very scenic and not too crowded in the morning. Much of the walk we see no one. Saw at least a dozen deer this morning.

Nice trail. Well maintained. Has water fountain with dog bowl right around mile 2.
