One hike down, 3 hikes to go (30 Before 30, #1)! Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is just north of Atlanta and my friend lives close to there. We have tried for a few months to hike the mountain, but finally fit it, along with my friend visiting from Nashville! It’s a beautiful park with lots of shady trails. It’s about a mile up, not too difficult, and the view from the top is awesome. It was also cool to be there on Memorial Day and read the Civil War historical markers and information (yes, I actually read them). Easy day trip (or part-day trip) from downtown!
