A big, hilly, woodsy park with lots to do, Kings Mountain State Park has been a regional favorite for generations. Built originally by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, Kings Mountain has miles of trails, equestrian facilities, group camping barracks, campgrounds, two fishing lakes with boat rentals and the popular Living History Farm. The farm is a realistic replica of a typical Piedmont farm from the early to mid 1800s. Buildings include a house, barn and gin, and there are gardens and animals, including cows, chickens and a bunch of friendly cats. Regularly scheduled special events at the park bring in local crowds and the park also is adjacent to Kings Mountain National Military Park, site of a pivotal Revolutionary War battle.

Wonderful state park with amazing and helpful rangers and staff! None of the hikes are hard and they are all pretty scenic. This is a nice little trail that you follow the stream on and can choose to split off and go to the living homestead and see all the animals and buildings and then come back to the trail. Wonderful trail for families and animals!
