We had a difficult time finding parking. The overflow lot had a few openings but if you're handicapped, it will be a difficult walk. Crossing at the light is strange as well. Traffic is heavy and drivers don't watch very well with all the walkers. The 35 minute video is well worth the time as is the museum. You can... More

The ranger who guided our tour of the museum (inside the Visitors Center was excellent. She was very enthusiastic and somewhat humorous (though not inappropriately so given that she was talking about a battle). Her enthusiastic style of story telling kept me engaged despite the fact that I tend to find history boring, especially the history of battles. The film... More

This national park has a unique feel to it--most of the visitors appear to come to walk or jog around the grounds and the mountain rather than take in the history of the site. There is a visitor's center that houses a small museum about the battle, and it is well stocked with several relics from the war, but the... More

Boy is it crowded here anymore but still a wonderful walk I remember back when we used to come here 25 years ago and had plenty of parking in the lot ( not the new overflow lot) But isn't it great to have all the pathways now ??? And a biscuit place close by and able to walk off the... More

We drove to the top of the mountain. It was beautiful but packed! Going up the mountain, runners, walkers, families were on the road. At the top of the mountain many people were gathered but very manageable. The parking lot was packed we had to wait for a spot. Our friends that live close by said the walk up is... More

We enjoy the hike up the mountain. Such beautiful views of the surrounding area and even views of downtown Atlanta. We always bring our lunch. The picnic area is very nice and clean. Great history of the mountain and surrounding area.

This National Park offers daytime access to one of the southern-most mountains in the Appalachian range. While primarily being set aside for the historic events that unfolded here during the Civil War, this park offers much more than a history lesson. The relatively small mountain (1800 ft.) will still get your blood pumping as you climb to the top. Be... More

Upon arrival, we viewed a 35 minute video, of the famous Civil War battle. It was well-produced, and especially worth viewing before touring the museum and grounds. A beautiful scenic view from the mountain summit; about 1,800 feet altitude. We drove to the top, but you can walk it. Overflow parking is available, and sorely needed. Worth a visit.

This battlefield is a popular spot for walkers, joggers, pet owners...actually a nice place for a date. I went into the gift shop and saw some of the movie...hence the title...an ugly chapter of the Civil War. Focus on current time...a great place to relax and to get healthy.
