Battlefield
The historical location of a major Civil War event, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park preserves the site of a battle fought between the Union and Confederate armies on June 18, 1864. Over 5,300 soldiers died during this battle, won against all odds by the vastly outnumbered Confederate forces. Designated as one of the country's historical districts in 1966, the park contains three major battlefield areas and a visitor center, where you’ll find a museum, theater, and information desk. Stop by the theater to watch short films about the battle, or walk some of the 27 km (17 mi) of interpretative hiking trails, which are lined with earthworks, cannon emplacements, and monuments dedicated to the soldiers who fought here.

  • Have been to Kennesaw Mtn several times, but just discovered a new hiking route today! Be sure to do Little Kennesaw Mountain and the Burnt Hickory Trail if you want a bit of an 'off the beaten path' ...  more »
  • Great place for a casual walk or a heart raising climb or run. Parking tight at the base but ample parking just down the road. Only draw back is you cant fly a kite  more »
  • Getting there is easy. The parking lot has limited parking. Come early! I came around 9:30 am. You have easy access to the visitor's center. I'm quite surprise that Kennesaw Mountain is not a state pa...  more »

  • I had never been until a few weeks ago. I expected a rather small, unexceptional park, but I was very impressed! The small museum was interesting and educational. I enjoyed hiking up the trail as well. It's a nice path that I was able to run down with ease. Going up is not too bad as it is in the shade. Great experience! Hope to go back!
  • Loved my time up there. Nice challenging hike up the mountain and really cool to see some history along the way. Gorgeous sites seeing around the metro area. This area is so green. And despite it being quite hot and sunny that day it stayed cool most of the trek along the trail as trees surround you most of the way. Worth the trip up. Can't wait to go back to complete the hike from one side to the other and back
  • My mom and went hiking here for alone time and there are beautiful views. It is great exercise and you can see Atlanta from the top of the mountain. They have a small, but neat civil war museum with merchandise. Bathrooms are decent. Please visit this beautiful area to hike, have a picnic, see the museum, ride you bike, or play in the field. -1 star however, because all the parking spots are usually taken.
  • Our entire family loves hiking here. The trails are well maintained and make for a great hike with fantastic views. The road to the top is also a good way to make the hike if you have children in strollers, as is often the case with us. It's long been a family favorite, and will continue to be for a long time.
  • Nice views... It's great for walks and to enjoy nature. My six year old son was able to enjoy it with me... nearly six miles! A few joggers and runners ran by us as well. It's great to meet people as we did or venture alone.
