Eleven trails throughout the park provide options for families and hardcore adventurers alike, so be sure to bring the Crowders Mountain trail map with you. The Ridgeline Trail connects Kings Mountain National Military Park and Kings Mountain State Park, and the Family Camping Trail supplies access to the family backpack camping area at the end of a 1 mile, natural surface trail. The Pinnacle Trail starts at the Sparrow Springs access point and finishes at the top of King’s Pinnacle, providing clear views of the surrounding area. If you’re planning to camp, the well-reviewed 2019 Toyota Highlander makes a great companion.
