Kings Mountain National Military Park: Battlefi eld Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Explore the site of what is considered one of the most important confl icts of the Revolutionary War. This paved, wheelchair-accessible trail explores the 1780 Battle of Kings Mountain through a very welldone collection of interpretive plaques and monuments. The beautiful hardwood-forest setting and occasional distant views along the trail, which circles the top of Kings Mountain, are worth the trip even if you’re not interested in the history. One of the highlights is an obelisk, reminiscent of the Washington Monument, that marks the location in which the Battle of Kings Mountain began to turn in favor of the revolutionary patriots."
