great hike with some good views

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!

Nice trail with 10 and 12 year olds.

Great day hike, challenging climb with great views at the top! Kids loved it!

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.

First mile is the hardest and then it gets easier as you go. Bring plenty of water if going in the summer.

Best trail at Kennesaw Mtn!! Lots of gain in altitude over the 1.8 miles from the parking lot on Burnt Hickory to the top of Kennesaw Mtn. My family and I love the trail due to the natural terrain, which means there are parts not well marked so you need to pay attention.

Nice 11 mile hike in the metro ATL area. Mostly shaded. The ascent of Kennesaw Mtn. is an easier approach from the visitors center, as the trail is wider and mostly improved, but also more heavily trafficked. East trail is mostly rolling hills and relatively easy.

The traffic noise is a little annoying sometimes but the trail itself is great! I run it frequently!

Variety of fun on this trail! My only complaints are: 1) the amount of traffic in beginning (starting from Visitor Center side); and 2) it was slightly confusing as to which way the trail led at the top of the mountain. We found out way with the help of another hiker. Other than that, this trail was packed with elevation climbs, beautiful views of the distant city, and awesome rock formations. As a hiking rookie, I would call this is a moderate/difficult hike. However, we brought our dog and he led the way the whole time! Will definitely visit this trail again.

Great hike, quite scenic but also quite busy on the trail around the visitor’s center. A little bit of confusion at the top so maybe a few more trail markers but I would definitely recommend.

Good trail to hike with inclines that are challenging though not too long. Many rocks make foot placement awareness a must! Hike on!!!

Great hike! As others say it’s more challenging than some other “moderate” hikes with a decent amount of incline and rocky paths. Most of the challenge is front loaded, assuming you choose to start straight up Pigeon Hill (clockwise on this map). Also worth noting the visitors center with restrooms is about 3.5 miles in. It is on the more crowded side, so if being alone on the trail is your thing, then this one isn’t for you.

my favourite Kennesaw Mt. trail.

great hike, challenging !

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.

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.

quick and beautiful hike, nice views, especially on a clear day being able to see Atlanta sky line

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.

Great trail

Fun trail to run on!

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.
