The Kennesaw Mountain Trail Club works in partnership with the National Park Service to support the historical and recreational value of the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. The organization focuses on maintaining the hiking, running and equestrian trails in sustainable, environmentally friendly ways that are protective of the historic features that the park was created to preserve.
In support of this mission, the club organizes monthly trail work days at which volunteers work under the direction of trained crew leaders on planned work projects in various areas of the 3000 acre park with its 20+ miles of trails.
We organize Trail Work Days that are held each 2nd Saturday of the month, from 8:30-1:30 Volunteers meet at the registration site at the park’s Old Hwy 41 parking lot. After signing registration forms, they are given directions and instructions for the day’s trail work projects. Volunteers will be assigned to crews under the direction of trained crew leaders. Work gloves and tools (shovels, rakes, rock bars, Pulaski’s) will be provided. Work is quite strenuous and usually involves hiking to the work site. Volunteers should wear sturdy, close-toed shoes and work clothes. Water will be provided. Please sign up to volunteer on the VolunteerKSU website.
Join us for great outdoor exercise, a physical challenge and awesome teamwork! You will make a lasting environmental contribution to a historically significant site.
