Nice little jaunt through Crowders Mountain and Kings mountain passing by Burnt Mills Creek. Starting and ending at Big Red's Cafe in Kings Mountain, NC. This route goes by Crowders Mountain Golf course and one access point to Crowders Mountain State Park. You will meander some back roads passing into SC and by Route 55 Country Store and Grill and you way to Burnt Mills Creek by way of Hwy 55 before heading back up into Kings Mountain State Park and back into NC before passing by a Drive-in that is open and showing movies as you make your way back into Kings Mountain. There is lots of country back roads scenery to enjoy along the way.

Drive Enjoyment

Roads are in fair condition in SC and good condition in NC. Mix of twisties at the start with some nice sweepers in the middle and end. There is not much change in elevation.

Tourism Opportunities

There is a little country mart (Route 55 Country Store and Grill) along the way to stop in and grab a drink or snack if you want one. there is also a working Drive-in Theater on this route. you can visit Kings Mountain National Military Park as well as the state park and Crowders Mountain State Park. Burnt Mills Creek is a cool little place to stop and jump in the creek to cool off, if you are so inclined to do so. all in all this is a cool little back roads/country roads trip that will let you have fun without taking all day if you want a quick little jaunt.
