Battlefield Trail is a paved 1.5 mile loop trail located near Blacksburg, South Carolina and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking. It contains information and monuments about a Revolutionary War battle. The trail closes early, so check park hours on their website. This is the site of the Oct. 1780 Battle of Kings Mountain, wherein an outnumbered force of colonial sharpshooters surrounded and defeated a British Loyalist force. Although the battle was little more than an hour long, it was one of the major turning points of the war. Paved, this 1.5 mile trail climbs the ridge, passing several historical markers. It proceeds along the top of the ridge and then turns back. The trail is wooded and views are very limited. The trail and visitor facilities are accessible, though the trail has steep sections and cross slopes that require caution for wheelchairs and strollers. Service animals are permitted. The park is closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Years Day.

Trail is now open. They used an elastic paving material (I'm thinking shredded tires) which made the trail even easier to walk.

Good hike, but the Battle Trail was closed for paving.

From an historical standpoint, this trail is as cool as it's going to get! I remember back in elementary school and middle school coming here on field trips and loving it! Now I'm 20 and I came back with my girlfriend and still so cool! So if you're history nerd, you will absolutely love this! Very simple hike with very minor hills. But pay attention to the historical landmarks!
