    Wonderful for a family hike - we did this with some extended family as well as our own kids on a trip to the area. The elevation made it somewhat challenging for some of us (the relative in the area that hikes it frequently had no trouble with it though). Recommend bringing water and decent hiking or walking shoes.The history made it really interesting, and the view at the top was definitely worth it.

    Very fun. Lots to explore other than the main summit path.

    I live within walking distance of this trail. I hike it often.
    This is a very populated area and it starts at the visitors center for Kennesaw National Battlefield Park. The hike is up the mountain all the way to the top. The trail is maintained but it can be rough in places. You will find information along the trail telling about the different battles that have taken place. Mostly people hike up the mountain then back down, but the trail continues down the other side of the mountain onto other trails. At the top of the mountain is an excellent view of the Atlanta skyline. One could also drive to the top of the mountain, instead of hiking; there is parking at the top. There are many fields at the bottom of the mountain that are suitable for picnicking or leisure time in the grassy area.

    Celebrate National Public Lands Day on September 26th with free admission to George T. Bagby State Park and Lodge. You'll find many ways to show your support for Georgia State Parks' mission to preserve, protect, and provide access to public Green Space. You can either take advantage of volunteer opportunities that day such as trail inspection or litter pick-up, take advantage of a great day for a fall hike. Or make it a vacation, with Bagby State Park Lodge's new Lodge-ical rates. Free admission day is 9/26/09.
