Kennesaw Mountain Hike & Mexican Social - Plus Dec and Jan Bday celebration

If it rains - meet at Rancho Grande anytime after 3:30 for a fun social.

**Please try to arrive by 1:45 so we can start the hike at 2:00 - we will start hiking at 2:00 on the dot :)

So it's the new year and we all want to stick to those new year resolutions. What better way than to hike Kennesaw Mountain? Join your friends new and old for a nice hike followed by margaritas. There, now you have even more motivation.

We will have a beginner/fairly-flat hike, an intermediate hike that is straight up and back down, and the advanced hike... up the mountain through the woods to Grandmother's house we go! Okay, we don't actually make it to Grandma's on the advanced hike but we will go up and around the mountain for a 5-6 mile loop.

Then we will head to Rancho Grande Mexican restaurant on Bells Ferry at Hwy 41 for some well earned margaritas and eats.  Also, we get 20% off of our checks.  If you're not interested in hiking, you are still welcome to join us at the restaurant around 4PM.
The address for the restaurant is: 1199 Bells Ferry Rd, Marietta, GA[masked]

You can attend one or the other, or both; just let us know when you RSVP, if you will be hiking and restaurant or just one or the other! If you have a December or January birthday, let us know and we will celebrate with you! Cake and singing will be at the restaurant just for you!
Looking forward to seeing everyone on the mountain!

Parking is limited at the Visitors Center, there is an overflow parking lot left on Old 41 Hwy and there is street parking -- just a brief walk to the visitors center. Arrive early - parking can be nuts!

    What a great hike up the mountain with energetic fellow members. The weather was no match for the enthusiasm of the group to adventure out on the flat, intermediate and uphill trails. The mexican restaurant social was awesome. The food was fantastic. There was cake for the member's birthday celebration. I'm glad I got out of the house and enjoyed a fun filled day.

    This meetup was great, thank u 35Up and a special thanks to Sandy for the wonderful uplifting spirit and B'day cake. The food as u said was pretty good as well. Just one thing that could have topped it all off and that was pic's of the B'day group.

    So much fun, the weather wasn't too bad and the fog gave a different perspective of the mountain. It was great to see so many brave people out, and so many new members. Mexican was fun as always, great way to spend an afternoon!

    Sandy is an excellent event coordinator and did a great job recognizing and engaging the newbies. Seems to attract a very nice mix of people.
