Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park Trails Professional Review and Guide

"The 9.5-mile West Trail runs from the visitor center to Kolb Farm Trail. The East Trail connects those same two points and is 7.4 miles in length. The Visitor Center to Pigeon Hill, Cheatham Hill to Kolb Farm, and Burnt Hickory to Cheatham Hill Loops all are composed of portions of the East and West Trails.

The featured trail is the Visitor Center to Pigeon Hill Loop, a 5.7-mile trail covering the northern end of the park. Halfway up, the trail merges into an old road running across the mountainside. Soon the path leaves the old road, turning uphill to the right. At this point it passes through a rock formation that offers an overlook of the town of Marietta. Switching back up the mountain, the trail passes another outcrop with a bench for resting. Along this north face of the mountain, the forest is dominated by chestnut oak trees. Virginia creepers are present in the rocky areas."
