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

Great climbs. Mostly single track. Multiple trees cross the path as obstacles. Lots of tree shade and multiple stream crossings. (only 1 that you will get your shoes wet on)

Very safe and the rangers are the friendliest! Restrooms are always nice and clean.

Was only 4 miles out and back when starting from the visitor center. Well maintained and marked trails, view from atop Brown Mountain was limited, but still, a nice hike through a pleasant forest. Good way to spend 2 or 3 hours, 30 minute drive from Lake Wylie / Steele Creek area.

Great trail to walk with puppies or young kids!

Peaceful, moderate hike. Some short climbs add variation to an otherwise rolling hills hike.
