We See More Deer, Wildlife and Nature with Fewer People on This Kennesaw Trail at Kennesaw Mountain
We enjoy early weekday morning walks at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, especially in some of the less-visited areas. While most visitors hike the main trail or road to the peak of Kennesaw Mountain, we often head to the Noses Creek Trail. Entering from the Pigeon Hill parking lot off Burnt Hickory Road, this section follows a wide trail shared by walkers, runners and equestrians. A variety of narrow and winding side trails offer more diversity in terrain, and a better opportunity to spot wildlife. We often spot deer along these trails. For history lovers, the trails include informational signs about troop placements, other preparations and the Civil War battle fought here. The park is dog friendly, though pets should always be kept on a leash according to park regulations. Join us on a 4-minute tour of the main trail, then take the narrow and winding west trail through the woods For more, follow DeanLand on Newsbreak, and visit OurTravelCafe.com
I'm a trained journalist, global traveler and retired business executive who worked for more than 20 years with some of the world's best and largest restaurant enterprises. I left the business world behind, living in Northwest Georgia and writing about avocations including outdoor excursions, family-friendly travel, road trips, exploration ideas for active seniors and some of my community passions. I've traveled to 47 states and nearly as many countries, and I'm still counting up. I'm a traveler, hiker, cyclist, blogger, marketing consultant, community volunteer and local high school band nerd who previously has lived in Florida, Ohio, Indiana and Mississippi. I'm a South Louisiana-born French Cajun whose great-grandparents were sugar farmers, bar owners and reputed bootleggers. My upbringing in food-rich Louisiana and my restaurant industry career affirmed my status as an over-qualified eater. That also inspired the name of my blog, OurTravelCafe.com. There, I offer up a complete menu of our my own experiences, explorations and adventures, organized by geography and always sprinkled with some spicy, tasty tidbits and food notes.
