Great park in the city, good for all skill levels.

pick this trail up during the eureka mine trail.

Great place, the only thing was with all this wilderness a group of idiots had to camp right by us & make noises & scream all night. Besides that it was very nice.

Did a partial of this today.
Started at NTH
Took red road to red/white connector.
White to Orange connector.
Orange to Blue
Back to NTH.
(Aprox. 7.5 miles)
Great scenery and variety.

Great time with my wife this morning up the Blue across the Red and down the White. Not too hot today but still crazy humid. Was in the shade the entire time.

Mostly just old mining roads.

There are some incredibly interesting things in the park. Old mines, confidence courses, tree houses with swinging bridges.
The cutoff trails are really nice but the main “trails” are lots of gravel road walking.

I really like this park.
The overlook at the quarry is a big draw, but the sunrise thru the trees on the Orange trail is spectacular.(Sunrays & spiderwebs)

I normally do the White to Yellow then loop back for 6 miles or.......if Im feeling frisky, White to Yellow to Orange. There are really only 4 uphills on Orange but be ready.

We never found the waterfall. Cemeteries were neat and rock formations at end of the hike were nice. More spiderwebs than I have ever had to deal with.

Not sure what the deal was with the off trail loop many people have taken at the end of the trail, but we took it and saw some great rock formations.

easy at first, but gets tricky towards the end. My husband and I are novice hikers and got a little lost at the end. Thank goodness for the alltrails app!

great trail. very kid friendly.. even took my 8 month old (not in a stroller, on my hip)

Easy trail, with a nice swinging bridge to check out right before the overlook.

Great day hike with varying terrain and several cool campsites along the way and at the waterfall. Any idea what the name of this falls is?

Some easy and flat trails, and some that are more of a “hike”. Good variety for running,walking or hiking. Very shady too!

The blue trail is my favorite at Oak Mountain. No bikers whizzing by makes this a beautiful, peaceful hike. I will do it again!

Easy hike on the way down since it’s all downhill. Not long before you see the waterfalls. Trail is pretty easy to follow, but no markings or signs. We didn’t pick the best day to go to see water falling, but everything else was nice and no one else was out.

easy hike, beautiful place, just wear hiking shoes and not regular shoes.

the main falls are beautiful getting down to them was a little nerve racking with a 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, and 12 year old. had to cross the water several times and not all the feet servived. the trail is overgrown and a hiker ahead of us going in met a timber rattler.

Loved this hike!!! My 4 year old golden retriever kept up really well too! The waterfall is amazing. It’s such a hidden gem!

Great hike with lots of options for scenic side-treks and amazing overlooks. If you start at the north end you’ll wind up at Peavine Falls as your halfway point. Not as majestic as I’d hoped for but the variety of scenery made up for the less than stellar waterfall and the fact that the waterfall is a bit busy with families since there is a parking lot near the falls.

Truly majestic! We went a mile up stream from the falls and found an old old man made dame and old Forrest signs grown into the trees. A great hike all around.

Nice well groomed fairly easy trail system. Trails are flat or with gradual grade changes for the most part because it travels along old mining trails. Park has a zip line, rope course, climbing tower, dog park and a few other attractions for kids if they’re open. Trails are well marked but the names and numbering are a bit confusing.

The trail was easygoing for about a mile, but then there were some tricky spots. I would not recommend this trail for the very young or the elderly. Some climbing experience is helpful.

I hiked about 2.5 miles of the trail (trail #200) yesterday from south to north, starting at the Sipsey trailhead and thought it was a great hike. The bluffs and outcroppings were magnificent and one could easily visualize our native Americans, and peoples before, using the area for shelter and subsistence.

I hiked the 209 at the cranal road outside parking lot .... i wasnt sure if you were suppose to pay 3 bucks to park there or if only to cross the wooden bridge and use that lot ...... any ways it follows it the creek for little bit then curves in to some bluff walls with a small water fall or 2 then goes back to the creek ...... it was moderate id say........ i saw a dead copperhead someone was kind enough to lay right where you would reach to grab the rock for support

beautiful place. Trail is no more than a foot path. a few small falls before get to the main falls.

Great trail for a beginner that doesn’t want to hike too far. This trail takes you through the woods, past a old cemetery, down to a creek, and to a super big waterfall. Easy day trip ! Beautiful as well.

If someone has mentioned this trail crosses Borden Creek I missed it, and after all the spring rains, it was a hazardous crossing.

Awesome place you need to see it

Had a great time today with my family. Beautiful waterfalls.
