The turn of the tide of success Thomas Jefferson called it "The turn of the tide of success." The battle of Kings Mountain, fought October 7th, 1780, was an important American victory during the Revolutionary War. The battle was the first major patriot victory to occur after the British invasion of Charleston, SC in May 1780. The park preserves the site of this important battle. Extended Weekend Hours from Memorial Day to Labor Day

I noticed this trail was missing on AllTrails, so I added it and got it approved by the administrators. Starts in Kings Mtn National Military Park and ends at the lake in Kings Mtn State Park. 6 mile round trip. Cool wilderness hike along a creek the first leg and then some minor elevation gain the rest of the way.

5 mile round trip. View at the summit kinda sucks. Too many trees. Cool forested hike to the top, though. A lot of inclining and declining, but never too difficult.

Nice trail, nothing difficult. View at top will be better once the leaves are off the trees. Great park staff.

split this trail in half. hiked first half camped then hiked second half. it was the first time I've hiked this trail. if I do it again I would go in at the national Park and hike to there camp site then back, and pack more water. the dreams there was almost dry and questionable to filter to drink.

Great hike on a cool morning. Great trail with the dogs.

Quick, short path. The hills make it a great workout. The kids liked the unpaved walk through the woods too.
