Crowded, especially on weekends, and hard to find parking. Cyclists and cars speeding down the paved roadway are unnerving, if not dangerous. People allow their dogs to go off lead and nobody stops them. It has lost its charm, and there has been a change in staff and operating hours, which seem to vary without notice. Mondays are runner's club days, and parking on site is nearly impossible until close to the time the gate closes. Was a great experience a few years back.

The family and I visited the battlefield, visitor center, and then drove up to the look out area. We then walked up the line of the Confederate cannon emplacements. All I can say is that I wish we were not just passing by! First off the grounds are very well maintained. There is a nice picnic area and hiking trails. We really wished we could have hiked and stayed longer but we were just passing through. We certainly plan on stopping in again and staying longer! The visitor center was great as was the gift shop.

My family and I visited Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park on our recent visit to Georgia. This park is a very interesting mix of history and nature. There are some very nice hiking trails in the hills north of Atlanta as well as historical markers concerning the battle at Kennesaw Mountain.
We started at the visitor center and especially enjoyed the well-made film that explains the battle. It was sobering to thinking so many men lost their lives in the beautiful area. The historical artifacts were also quite interesting in the museum area of the visitor center. Do note that there is a $5 charge to park at the National Battlefield. I paid the fee inside the visitor center.
We drove and walked some of the battlefield. If you like history this is a very interesting place. I highly recommend a visit.

Really needed a few more hours to fully do some hiking to specific attractions- have a bad knee so we chose the self guided car tour and although very cool, we were kinda short at each stop bc I just couldn’t explore by foot. This place is beautifully eerie once you immerse yourself in its history.
Best time to go is during the week and most definitely in the fall when the leaves are changing. Some views from the top of Kennesaw Mountain are gorgeous. On a good day you can see downtown ATL and Stone Mountain to the East. Good video in the visitor center and access to everything is $5. Will be back when ambulatory. 👍🏼

I'm a Civil War buff. I have visited the battlefield at Gettysburg on 10 occasions. Manassas, Antietam, Vicksburg and Appomattox are favorite destinations, too. For some reason, I've never devoted much time to the Atlanta campaign. But I decided to do some catching up during our most recent trip south. Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park was on my itinerary. The key to General William Tecumseh Sherman's assault on Atlanta, it was deemed a Confederate victory but General Joseph E. Johnston's army retired and Sherman went on to capture Atlanta, then conduct his famous march to Savannah. Located at 900 Kennesaw Mountain Drive, off I-75, between Kennesaw and Marietta, Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield Park covers 2,923 acres and includes three battlefield areas: in front of the Visitor Center, off Burnt Hickory Road and a major site at Cheatham Hill, commonly known as the Dead Angle. Curiously, much of the battle took place not on 1,808-foot-tall Kennesaw Mountain itself but on a spur of Little Kennesaw Mountain known today as Pigeon Hill and the area to its south around Cheatham Hill. At the south tip of the park, Peter Valentine Kolb's farm house, where a minor skirmish was fought, has been restored to its original condition. The Visitor Center contains an information desk, museum and a theater that screens movies about the battle. While walking some of the 17.3 miles of interpretative hiking trails, visitors can explore history earthworks and cannon emplacements. Interpretative signs tell the story of the battle. The park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1966.

I went and purchased a pass for going up the mountain in my vehicle at the business office. I was very impressed by the young man who sold it to me. He was articulate, knowledgeable and quite gracious. To the Kennesaw mountain manager. You very lucky to have him. He can go far, he obviously very passionate about his job.

I should have been better prepared for this place. The film at the Visitor's Center should be mandatory. Although lengthy, it very aptly describes what happened at this wonderful site. What I didn't expect is that to get to certain crucial places, one must hike very rocky trails. I needed my hiking boots and stick. The trail to Cheatham Hill--which is a must-see--is very easy and level. It is a moving site. Cheatham Hill is the first land acquired for this military park. It is the site of the heaviest fighting, and both sides declared a temporary truce for the purpose of burying their dead.

This is a great place to visit and learn about history and nature. Kids have a good time and you can invest some good quality time. If you like walking and learning you will have a ball.

Beautiful park. The trails themselves are amazing, but the staff has allowed the Bicycle mafia to overtake the road that goes to the top of the mountain. BICYCLISTS FREQUENTLY RIDE 35 MPH+ down the steep road/hill, weaving in and out of pedestrians, and many times barely missing the walkers on the road. The posted speed limit is 15 MPH, but neither the staff nor law enforcement does ANYTHING to address this safety hazard. I've complained about it several times, but they refuse to do anything about it.

I've been on the mountain hundreds of times, and have never seen a staff member, volunteer or law enforcement actually on the road, or even at the (single) entrance to the road that goes up the hill. It wouldn't be hard to post someone at the bottom of the hill and say to each bicyclist as they are heading up, "Hey, the max speed is 15 MPH. If you speed down this road, you will be kicked out of the park." Instead, the bicyclists are allowed to continue to intimidate the walkers.

Lots of people with their dogs hiking the mountain. You can also drive to the top. It’s a fairly short and easy hike, only about 0.9 miles. The view is pretty good. It seemed like most visitors were there for the hike rather than the history. Parking lot was pretty full. There is a movie you can watch at the visitors center about the history.
