I have been to Kennesaw Mountain multiple times. I enjoy watching the events that take place there. There is a nice small museum there. It's an interesting place. Turns out that one of my great great grandfather's died there during the Civil War.

This time I am better prepared to hike this area. The first time I reviewed I stated that they should have more markers, they actually do. They have printed maps at the visitor center (first time I went, they were out!) which u can actually print off their website as well. I hiked a total of 7.2 miles today, took... More

Kennesaw Mtn National Battlefield Park was a wonderful surprise. It is located just off of I-75 Barrett Pkwy and very easily accessible. This is a large sprawling battlefield park that is very driveable; in fact the battlefields are scattered and you can see them best by driving. However to get to some battlefields you actually leave the park and drive... More

Very beautiful national park. Free to park. Free to enter. Beware it can get pretty crowded so parking can be a pain. Parking right in front of the main office is especially difficult but there is overflow parking a short drive away. On weekdays you can drive up to the top of the mountain yourself, but on weekends I hear... More

To be candid I was a little disappointed, especially after having visited many other Civil War sites. If you don't like hiking or walking fairly long distances this park is not for you. I could see children getting tired and bored real quick. Also, if you are a Civil War buff, like me you will likely be disappointed. There really... More

Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is almost in my backyard. I hike everyday. So many different trails you can do. The park is taken care of by the park service and caring volunteers. Great history lesson as well on the civil war. Hiking, biking, horseback riding, picnics. So much to do.

We went on a Sunday. The park was packed. Lots of people there utilizing the area for exercise. It is dog friendly. Excellent reinactment of how canons were fired. Had a great time.

My husband and I were in the area visiting our son and daughter in law, and they wanted to take us here. When we arrived it looked like there was an informational talk going on outside, so we slipped out of the visitors building, only to discover we were crashing a press conference! Since it had started, and there was... More

Kennesaw Mtn. is a great park! A few trails to choose from with different difficulty levels. Parking at the Ranger Station can be a challenge but there is a larger parking lot down Old 41 Hwy. Love it!!!!
