A short, paved 10-mile route chock-full of interesting sights, including a Revolutionary War battlefield, two state parks, a living history farm just over the border in South Carolina, and prominent Piedmont peaks. This short drive is notable for its connection to Revolutionary War history. Many people tend to think of places like Lexington, Concord, Philadelphia, Boston, or Yorktown when they think of the battle for American independence. However, battles in North and South Carolina were critical to the ultimate defeat of the British. The drive begins at Kings Mountain National Military Park, just across the South Carolina border. The park is an excellent launching point for a journey into the Carolina past. Special attractions: Kings Mountain National Military Park, Kings Mountain State Park, Crowders Mountain State Park, historic battlefield, Living History Farm, hiking, fishing, swimming, rock climbing, boating, fall colors, and scenic views. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
