At the state line there is a cleared area for a gas pipeline. Across the clearing a sign tells about the mistake made by the surveyors. The line was incorrectly placed in 1735 and not corrected until 1772. I wonder how many people changed their state of residence without moving. The trail continues south from here crossing another clearing for a pipeline and joining a fire road. We stopped at the second clearing today but have hiked further in the past. The trail follows the borderline between Kings Mountain State Park and Kings Mountain National Military Park in areas. It is three miles from the state line to the intersection with the Kings Mountain National Recreation Trail.
