Kings Mountain Horse Trail

This easy to moderately difficult 30+ mile loop trail begins in Kings Mountain State Park and circles into Kings Mountain National Military Park, the site of a famous Revolutionary War battle. The surface is primarily flat with some rocky areas and some clay spots. A local saddle club takes care to watch over the trails and ensure solid footing on some of the ridge climbs. Both parks offer gorgeous riding through rolling hills and granite outcroppings not far from Charlotte, NC The parks sit in the eastern foothills of the Blue Ride Mountains, but they seem somewhat out-of-place with the area’s other gently rolling terrain. Small mountains called manodnocks jut above the surrounding flatland and offer spectacular views.
