This is a great way to take in the beautiful scenery, see historical landmarks and get a good workout. Bring your 2 or 4 legged friends, walking shoes and water. Explore many trails flat or hilly there is a trail for everyone.

We hiked the long trail (5.8mi) and really enjoyed it. The first half included the peak of Kennesaw mountain and the smaller peak, little Kennesaw mountain. The second half was much less of an incline, but scenic and fun for the end of the hike....More

15 minutes or less. If you get off at Rt. 5 it's a pretty quick trip from there. If you need directions, ask me.
