Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This loop hike on the Kings Mountain National Recreational Trail includes a 0.5-mile side hike to Browns Mountain. At 1045 feet it is the highest point on the route, with decent winter views to the south and southwest. Browns Mountain was once the site of a fire tower, and the four stone pillars can still be seen on the summit where they held the foundation of the structure in place. Kings Mountain National Recreational Trail passes along the southern portion of the Kings Mountain Range, and this 16-mile hike traverses both the Kings Mountain National Military Park and Kings Mountain State Park.

The military park is the site of a prominent Revolutionary War battle (discussed in more detail in the Battlefield Trail) while the state park, originally built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, documents the lifestyles of early pioneers at the Living History Farm. The state park is designed to meet the needs of the modern-day outdoor adventurer, with recreational activities including hiking, picnicking, fishing, paddling, and horseback riding over 6883 acres of forest."
