My wife and I enjoyed this great little hike. Well marked and maintained trail.

Short, very easy trail. I'm an avid geocacher, and there are several caches hidden along this trail. Very nice walk in the woods!

Braved the cold temp(28) today. We had not been to the falls in over 10 years. Still a great short hike.

Nice challenging trail! Worth the hike!

Great hike today with family

Great short hike!! Love this place ♥️

Went out and hiked the new trail. Great trail. Can't wait to ride it.

It was good:)

I love the blue trail! I prefer to start off in the PVF parking lot — you still get elevation gains if you hike the entire trail but the ascents are more gradual than if you start from the north trailhead. My favorite loop is blue trail to yellow trail to green trail. I start and end at the south trailhead/Peavine Falls parking lot. Lots of beautiful vistas, around 2000 ft elevation gains, and it’s a 14.4 mile hike if you include a stop at Kong’s Chair. If you enjoy long hikes and have about 6 hours to spare, I highly recommend it!

good workout getting up the mountain, definitely worth it once you're up on the ridge

Lives up to its name. Great treat to see after a run.

Nice trail. Leave it for bikers though.

Awesome workout. Starts off rough coming from the north trail. Ran/walked/hiked from the gate to Kings Bridge lookout and back. The view is worth it. Yall weren’t lying when you rated it “difficult.”

Oak Mountain is a beautiful place! I have ran here multiple times and have always had a beautiful experience! It challenges me in the best way! Hike to King’s Chair for a jaw dropping view!

This was a very confusing situation. We went 5.5 miles and finally had to just walk on the road to get to the car because the park was about to close. It was probably about 7 miles rather than 3.6 as indicated. Beautiful terrain and more like 18 bridges rather than 7 as indicated. :-/. The last half was actually a bike trail that did not follow the path. It was a beautiful day though.

Amazing experience.

Fairly easy route. Steep climb right out of North Trailhead. A lot of exposed tree roots. Great view and peaceful once you get to King’s Chair. Fairly easy hike out. Decided to skip Red-blue connector and go to orange connector so as to pass plane crash site. Nothing really to see. Took orange connector to Red road for feeder trail out to north trailhead. Red road is gentle downhill descent with a lot of gullies. Overall it was a good trail. Bring camera for great pics on overlooks.
