Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail

The Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail is 330 miles in length and includes portions of Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The Trail commemorates the significance of the Patriot Militia that marched over the Appalachian Mountains to defeat the British-led Loyalist Army at the Battle of Kings Mountain on October 8, 1780.

In Burke County, the trail stretches from Morganton north to Lenoir, west to Lake James, and south to South Mountains State Park.
