Great exercise and civil war history location. Used by most locals as a hiking mountain. Great for families and athletes. Besides walking up the mountain trials, there are many wooded hiking trials around the base. This location has grills and great for picnics. It is very safe and clean!

This is a gem of history tucked up in the ridge between Marietta and Kennesaw! We leave about 15 minutes away, and simply go hiking up on the mountains and to enjoy the scenery. If you're a history buff and/or enjoy trail running, this is a must see! Enjoy

Kennesaw's Battlefield Park is a "winner" for history buffs! But also a great opportunity for casual walks or much more challenging hikes! This Park is family and pet friendly ...just keep the leash and clean up items handy. Picnicking area and parking are available. "Locals" and Visitors utilize the Park but it doesn't feel "over-run."

I grew up in the shadow of Kennesaw Mountain in the late 50s and early 60s, moved away and find myself again living in its shadow 50 years later. The mountain is now a peaceful reminder of a war that encompassed the area many, many years ago. Walking trails and fields of grass surround the mountain and adults and children... More

Our family did the mountain trail and walked up the 1800' high peak in a mile walk. It is very steep but we were rewarded for our efforts with a wonderful view of Atlanta and the beginning of the Blue Ridge mountain range. There are cannons and displays explaining the monutain's place in civil war history and There is a... More

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.
