Great day for a family hike, went with my kids (11 & 8) and wife it was tough but we truly enjoyed the challenge, the view at the top and the family time. Take enough water and snacks for the hike because it's no walk in the park. Good hiking shoes are a must for climbing rocks and walking over loose gravel on decent.

Hard. Very hard. Not sugar coating it for you. I walked from pigeon Hill to big kennesaw and it was 3.34 miles. It was a lot of straight up hill and rocks.
Bring bug spray and a lot of water. I thought I was in okay shape, but that quickly changed my thinking.

I like to take Pigeon Hill to top of Big Kennesaw, down to visitor center, then back. Great workout.

I love this trail! To make it more difficult I start at Pigeon Hill and walk all the way to the top of Kennesaw mountain then back down the way I came. Instead of going down the mountain towards the visitor center and back around the mountain. I used to do this hike daily after work before I moved further away!

Took this trail many times while living in the area. Easy to moderate hiking. Very nice.

Favorite hike in Atlanta. Little Kennesaw Mountain is the best stretch of trail. The mile from the Visitors Center to the top of Kennesaw Mountain is the very crowded, especially on the weekends.

We took the Red trail. Trails are well-marked and well cared for. There are some rocky areas to navigate but the trail was wonderful! Take water with you because there are no water sources on the trail.

Loved it! We had the kids and it was a little difficult for them..... But they pushed through! We will be coming back very soon!

Starting at Pigeon Hill and ascending he twin peaks of Kennesaw Mountain, the the sharp descent back to the Visitor's Center and a pleasant walk/hike back on the East Trail makes for a very nice hike.

Good local trail for staying in shape or conditioning for bigger hikes in north Georgia. Expect a lot of foot traffic.

A great after work hike. Usually more traffic until you get to "Little Kennesaw Mt," after that it tends to get a little more quiet. Great to use for training for longer treks. It's nice to take a rest at pigeon hill, very serene. Lots of awesome history, too.
