Event Directions: Burnt Hickory Parking Lot
I-75 North to Exit 269, Barrett Parkway; turn left off the exit onto Barrett Parkway; travel approx 4 miles and turn left onto Burnt Hickory Road. Parking lot is on the right side of the road.
Today we will be hiking from Burnt Hickory Road to the Illinois monument and back to Burnt Hickory Road to our parked cars. While they do have some moderate inclines, these trails are not as strenuous as going up and down the mountain itself. This is a good choice for beginners or those who are just looking for a fairly easy hike.
Please note we will NOT be hiking up or down Kennesaw Mountain.
Although this is rated as a Moderate hike due to miles and some elevation gain, it is suitable for Beginners as we will be hiking at a moderate pace with a small break at the Illinois Monument.
