MORE INFORMATION: Kings Mountain State Park 1277 Park RD Blacksburg, SC 29702 803-222-3209
HIGHLIGHTS: Kings Mountain State Park rests in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains next to the Kings Mountain National Military Park, a prominent Revolutionary War battle site in the late 1700’s. A Living History Farm is located at the park, which allows visitors to re-live the lifestyles of the early pioneers through a replica of a 19th century South Carolina yeoman farm. The farm includes a barn, cotton gin and blacksmith/carpenter shop.
This easy 1.2-mile roundtrip loop trail begins at the picnic area in Kings Mountain State Park (not at the National Park). The Kings Mountain Nature Trail is a pleasant hike through a lightly forested area that is suitable for all members of the family, including the dog. This trail is not far from Charlotte, N.C. and is occasionally crowded on the weekends – particularly in the warmer months. So the pooch must be on a leash of no more than six feet, which is characteristic of many of the State Parks in both South Carolina and Georgia.
