Parking is available at the trailhead about a half-mile south of downtown Kings Mountain at 807 S. Battleground Avenue on the corner of Quarry Road.
Lots of hills , nice paved path part is only about 1.5 miles. The long trail toward I 85 very hilly and big rock gravel .
Trail is ok. Not a fan of hills after living where I did before. Trail is clean and shaded somewhat.
The short loop trails are a great way to unwind. Either the Butterfly Garden or at the top of Cardio Hill. Also offers workout stations which I haven't seen in sometime. Will maintained and great facilities at the trail head. Great view of Crowders and Kings Mountain from the top of Cardio Hill.
Once you get off the pavement onto the gravel , the challenge begins. The gravel is large and hard to control your bike. The trail now crosses the interstate but not sure how far it goes. The map is not up to date.

Easy to find, nice facilities and parking lot. I used map-my-walk on my iphone to keep track of where I was, you may want to print a map because it can get confusing. Good workout as most of the trails are hilly. I liked the summit with the well kept overlook.
Went with the family looking for some bike trails and from the description here it was just what we were looking for a nice leisurely day. We were very disappointed with what we found. This trail is more for walkers and joggers. It has very short sections of possibly a half mile but you have to back track and cross over trails you were already on to get any real ride time. Very short sections and boring for biking. Definitely do not recommend for biking only walking and jogging if you want a smooth surface that you can run circles on.
My husband and I were looking for a new ride that would give us 8-10 miles on our bikes and we found this trail on TrailLink. From the description we understood that it was part asphalt and part gravel. However, the only part of the trail system longer than one mile (the Foote path) was coarse gravel and very hilly. On some sections, the path was too steep for us to ride without spinning our wheels and we had to walk our bikes. We did make it to the end of the Foote path and had plenty of solitude along the way. I am sure we would come back, but only if we find out the trail has been paved. The area is nice and quiet and if you are looking for some short trails (< 1 mile ) to ride your bike, then give Gateway a try.
My husband and I walked the majority of this trail recently. It was well maintained and gave us a variety of scenery, surfaces, and difficulty levels. We will be returning again to complete the 2.8 Foote Trail.
