On September 25, 1780, the Overmountain Men gathered at Sycamore Shoals on their march to victory at King’s Mountain.  Members of the Overmountain Victory Trail Association have recreated this historic journey since 1975, following the same route and timetable as their legendary forebears.  Marchers will cross the Watauga River at the Sycamore Shoals, as the frontiersmen would have done 240 years ago.

Approximate time of crossing the river is 2:00 PM.
