Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail The Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail (OVNHT) commemorates the campaign leading to the battle of Kings Mountain by following the Revolutionary War route of Patriot militia men from Virginia, today's eastern Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina to the battle site at Kings Mountain National Military Park in South Carolina.

Although the Trail is still being fully developed, visitors may access approximately 47 miles of the route at various points along the 330 mile long corridor. A parallel Commemorative Motor Route may also be driven. The Motor Route uses existing state highways and, in some stretches, actually travels over the old historic roadway.

 

 

 

Getting There:
The commemorative motor route is over public highways. Check individual facilities along the route for days and hours of operation.
