“Great scenery, great history, great hiking”
The Visitor Center at Kennesaw Mountain is located at 900 Kennesaw Mountain Dr. and is open Monday - Sunday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm except on major holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years).
Excellent hiking opportunities here with 20+ miles of well maintained trails running through the battlefields. Be warned that the park gates close at 6PM, so make sure you make it back in time to leave. Some great earthworks are still present in the southern part of the park. The hike to the top of Mount Kennesaw is a short 0.8 miles from the visitors center and is worth the effort in sweeping views of downtown Atlanta.
I love visiting Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park on trips to Atlanta. Many Atlantans use the park to get away from the city--on weekends I am convinced it is Georgia's largest dog park (which is the only drawback: some people don't clean up after their dogs). The rangers are very helpful, the Junior Ranger program is great for kids, and the ranger programs are entertaining and informative. The hikes are pretty easy, but well worth it for the views of Atlanta. Do keep in mind that this is a historic battlefield, so picnics and games are not allowed in the open spaces.
Very nice! The grounds were taken care of, bathrooms at the visitor center were clean and the rangers were nice and informative.
It is a must see, respectful site.
Civil War enthusiasts will appreciate the park’s historical monument, ruins, earthworks, and the cannon. The 11-mile round trip passes through the battlefields at Pigeon Hill and Cheatham Hill and through a 1930s CCC camp.
