Next on my Tour of must see mountains of North Carolina is "The Pinnacle," Sometimes called "King`s Pinnacle" given that nearby King`s Mountain is next to it. But it`s proper name is "The Pinnacle." The mountain is located near the towns of King`s Mountain and Gastonia, NC in Gaston County. The Mountain is most famous for not only its unique look but also for its Historic significance. It`s the sight of an American revolutionary battle, "The Battle of Kings Mountain." the battleground is now known as Kings Mountain National Military Park. The Military Park boasts some of the most beautiful trails in North Carolina and there are several campgrounds and fishing lakes in the area. The Mountain and Park recently suffered a forest fire that burned a good portion of the area, but now it`s a good place to watch the unique ecosystem of the area recover from fire. On a clear day you can see the City of Charlotte, NC from the top of the Mountain (Pic 2) giving you a wonderful view of both Nature and Man-made structures in the same picture. So If you`re looking for a Mountain with wonderful views and historic value, then The Pinnacle is the prefect Mountain to visit!
