Cowpens National Battlefield 6/11K Walk

This is a "Revolutionary War History Weekend", 3 Walks hosted by two clubs.  In addition to the Cowpens National Battlefield Walk, Brattonsville and Kings Mountain were all important to our independence.  The Asheville Amblers are hosting the Cowpens walk and because of Park regulations, pre-registration must be made prior to the event date.  I have copies of the pre-registration form that you can pick up at our next two walks, Travelers Rest or the Paris Mountain State Park Walk.  If you cannot attend either of these walks but would be interested in the Cowpens Nat'l Park walk please let me know and I can get a form to you.

Walk description for Cowpens:  6/11 KM - 1B    Wends through Nature Trail with wild flowers and migratory birds and through impressive bamboo stand. Walk then continues onto battlefield loop with extensive information on how the battle was fought and its importance to the sucess of the Revolutionary War. See movie at Visitor Center, cemetery and old settler's home. 5KM option is choice of either nature loop or battlefield loop. Battlefield loop suitable for wheel chairs and strollers.

This is a "tradional walk with a start/finish point, route marking, check point personnel.  You may walk as fast as you like or take your time and observe as you go.

    We had a great turnout from our UpState PathFinders' group. Of the 56 people that had started the walk by the time we finished, 17 of them were from our group. The walk was GREAT...very educational! The brats were good and it was a very enjoyable day for the walk.
