After checking out the amazing Peachoid, Noelle, Sierra and I headed further up I-85 and briefly into North Carolina. We exited the interstate and quickly headed back into South Carolina and into Kings Mountain National Military Park. We parked the car outside the visitor center, ate a snack
The was on a paved trail through a pleasant section of woods.
Soon after the Hoover Monument, the trail started to ascend to the spine of Kings Mountain. We came to the Centennial Monument which had been built in 1880 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the battle.
From the US Monument the trail started to descend. We soon came to a stone marking the spot where British Major Patrick Ferguson fell.
