    Gotta do the hike to the top. It can be a bit of a struggle if you aren't used to climbing but the views are amazing.

    There is different levels of hiking for those who want an easy walk and those who want more of a work out. Sometimes you can see the deer that live in the park!

    Great escape from the city with tons of hiking trails and gorgeous views. Take advantage of the educational opportunities and watch a Civil War reenactment.

    The Visitors Center is powered by SOLAR! Walk behind the building (towards trails) and look up at the roof.

    Looking for a challenge? Hike up this mountain. Want a bigger challenge? Run up the paved road to the top! Don't forget to run the stairs at the very top!

    If you are able, take the trail down the backside of Little Kennesaw Mt. and back around. The view was beautiful.

    Dates from 1917, with the federal acquisition of sixty acres of the battlefield surrounding Cheatham's Hill, the battle in June 1864 marks some of the heaviest fighting of the Atlanta campaign.

    For a higher-resistance workout and a bigger burn, add a heavier backpack for your hikes up this mountain!

    Friend was missing after hours, the ranger moved in slow motion spending more time giving warnings than getting me to a phone so I could call and make sure she was OK. Dick.

    When I run here, I feel like I'm in the Hunger Games. I half expect a wall of fire to come out of nowhere.
