New Feature!



This site near Marietta is where the historic Battle of Kennesaw Mountain was fought. Nearly 70,000 men died, were wounded or captured during this battle, which was won by the confederates. The site once belonged to the Cherokee Nation, forced into exile after making the "Trail of Tears." Today many serious hikers enjoy the miles and miles of wooded trails. There are mulitple entrances to the park and a variety of trails, so visitors won't easily be bored. Besides hiking, find many enjoying a picknick or even horse-back riding through the trails. Visit off peak times to easily land a parking spot.
