Let's get outside and get even more exercise!
This is my favorite hiking trail at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. Normally I would do just a five-mile loop, gently rolling, nothing too strenuous...but...Mary has convinced us we are ready for more!
Let's do eleven miles together and then treat ourselves to lunch. The weather should be perfect for a morning in the woods!
It will take approximately 3 hours. Are you up for it? Wear comfortable shoes, bring your positive attitudes. No whiners, no slow pokes. Bring water bottles and a snack.
Then we can lunch on the patio at West Cobb Diner, 3451 Ernest W Barrett Pkwy NW, Marietta, GA 30064, (770) 422-7717. (It's West Cobb's best kept secret! You'll thank me for introducing you to this local favorite.)
Let's meet at 9:00 at the new parking lot on Cheatham Hill Road in Marietta, just Southwest of the John Ward Rd. intersection.
NOTE: This lot is on Cheatham Hill Road - not Dallas Highway and not at the Visitor Center.
DIRECTIONS: Take 75 North to Barrett Pky exit, turn left (south) to Dallas Highway intersection, left on Dallas Highway, right on John Ward Rd, left on Cheatham Hill (parking lot on the right 1/8 mile).
From the Marietta Square: West on Whitlock (which turns into Dallas Hwy), left on John Ward, left on Cheatham Hill (parking lot on right 1/8 mile).
