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 57 miles of the route at various points along the 330 mile long corridor. Official sections of the Trail are established through agreements with current landowners, and often have overlapping designations. All officially certified segments are identified through the use of signs displaying the Trail logo (an Overmountain man in profile on a brown and white triangle) or a white triangular blaze.

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.

The OVNHT is part of the National Trails System.
