Kings Mountain Gateway Trail


The Kings Mountain Gateway Trail Inc. opened November 2009. The Trail is owned by Cleveland County and is managed by the Kings Mountain Gateway Trails Board and Committee. There are 5 land owners that contributed property for the trail. Grants, fundraisers, sponsors, and individual contributions have helped with development. The trail is part of the Carolina Thread Trail, a National Recreation Trail for the U.S. and is part of the North Carolina Rail Trail system. The City of Kings Mountain and the local Police Department also assist the trail. Approximately 10,000 to 12,000 people use the trail per month. Approximately 2 more miles will be added in 2013 and 2014.
