there's always a good hike to have here. But don't get stuck on just hiking the mountain, there are plenty of other trails to hike and just as much history.

This was a great place to stop and let the kids run around for a while. Lots of trails to explore. Be aware that parking is a nightmare, as the locals use this as more of a recreational park than a historic park. That being said, since it is so well-used the trail system is extensive and well-maintained.

The movie shown in the museum depicted the battles of the area very well. The grounds are wonderfully preserved and it is sobering to think of the battles that were fought in the area.

Me n my friends go on the weekends for the Kennesaw mountain trek. It's pretty steep. Wouldn't recommend for old people. It's less crowded in the early mornings.

Kennesaw Mountain is not really a big park but it is a nice place for a little hike or walk and for jogging. You also have a pretty good view on Atlanta from the top.
