This is a very beautiful place to go on any nice day. Great place to get some exercise, set up a hammock, or bring a picnic. If you're lucky, Noses creek sometimes gets deep enough to full on swim.

Starting at the Burnt Hickory Parking lot on Kennesaw National Battlefield, you head south on a pretty flat trail. After a mile and a half you will come across a bridge that goes over Noses Creek. If you're looking to cover more ground, the trails around the creek expand for miles in any direction, with some trails having steep inclines while others have amazing views of massive fields and wildlife

Easy And Scenic

Just went here with about five friends (and one dog). I definitely plan to come back with my wife and kids. If you have a jogging stroller, it should be no problem to bring it on the main trail. There are lots of offshoot trails throughout the park as well. Plenty of shade and beautiful open fields.
