Beautiful day for this hike. 50 degrees and sunny! Good hike. Nice challenge back up from the falls to parking lot

Great day for a hike. Marked well!!

Great day hiking trail. If you do the loop, it’s a moderate hike. Definitely recommend, especially on a beautiful day!

Beautiful and a good challenge

My family(9yo6yo) did this trail. There were a few times we questioned if we were on the right track but this app was wonderful! I showed others on the trail and they were downloading it for their next hike. The looks were gorgeous and the falls were so beautiful! The kids brought their hunting boots and played in the falls. They loved rock climbing

Easy hike with only a few inclines. Easily connects to white and rec.

Thanks for the Memories

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.

This is one of our favorite trails to take when we haven’t hiked in a while and need to take it fairly easy. Usually a group of three of us go, and we park one car at the North Trailhead and ride together to the overlook on the way up to Peavine Falls trailhead so we can hike one-way instead of the loop. There are a few small hills, but nothing bad. It can get tricky due to big chunks of gravel at some spots so you need to watch your step or you’ll trip. If it has rained an unusually large amount, you’re going to get your feet and possibly your legs wet crossing several places. If it’s summer and it’s hot and there isn’t a breeze, keep moving because there is one spot at the highest altitude where you’ll always have a breeze. This is a great place to stop and eat a snack.

Love this trail— takes about 2-3 hours (if taking your time) out and back. I go with my doggo, and we usually don’t see anyone until we get to the falls. Once you get to peavine falls it’s a little difficult to find them, but if you keep going on the “top of falls” path, you’ll get over a hill to the bottom of the falls. 10/10 would recommend.

Great hike - more like 4.5 miles though. Beautiful scenery with the streams and bridges. Definitely a do over.

Quick hike to get the kids out and into the woods. Followed it up with the Treetop loop so my 2 yr old could see the rehabbing owls, vultures and hawks. She loved it!

Red Road from the north trail head traverses Oak Mountain State Park to the scenic overlook. The first 2.5 miles is an ascent up the mountain. The remainder is mostly flat, but is a rock old fire road. The trail is also shared with mountain bikers, but that isn't a problem due to the width.

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

A lot of fun. Hike down to the falls was pretty steep for my two 9 yr olds, but they were able to get down and up again safely.

Nice hike. Short. Parts poorly maintained, considering you pay to get in to the park. Parts may be difficult for smaller children.

Good loop. Nice adjacent streams. Once you are on Group Camp Road look for closed gate to parking lot. Seven Bridges Trail is just before gate but isn’t marked. Watch for bikes on this trail.

Awesome hike down a steep incline. It feels like hiking in the ADXs. Clean cold waterfall at the bottom

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.

I didn’t do the whole Bump Trail because there was a mountain bike race on the trail the day I went so I did the Treetop Nature Trail (.5 mile family friendly walk with exhibits of rescued raptors) to the Yellow Trail, also called the Foothills Trail, ending at Lake Tranquility. This route intersected me with the Bump Trail a few times. There were some elevation gains on the Yellow Trail that added a challenging touch, and in many areas you truly get the feeling of being by yourself in the woods. The Yellow Trail winds you multiple times near and over a very scenic creek, so if you’re a “fill as you go” hiker you’ll have plenty of opportunities for water refills or to just get you hat wet to cool off like I did. The trail looks like it ends at a picnic area because of a downed bridge but a short walk around reveals a second bridge. Continuing on this trail takes you to the Lake Tranquility dam, which you approach via a trail next to the dam’s spillway which makes for a nice waterfall, and the trail wraps around the small lake for more great scenery.

Great trail for some cardio!

An uphill trek begins from the North Trailhead. Once on the ridge, you'll be treated with gorgeous scenic views. Don't miss King's Chair, Eagle's Nest and other views from the ridge. Will definitely be back.

First time hiking in oak mountain. The green trail has a bit of a bite to it. Definitely a moderate trail with various dips and rises across the mountain to the Peavine Fall. We connected to the white trail to the top of the falls. The climb down to the bottom of the fall is a bit tricky an can be slippery climbing out. Taking the green trail back became a little tasking so we took the orange (horse) trail back to the wild life center. It’s a pretty level hike back saved us about 30 minutes (just watch your step). Overall Peavine Falls did not disappoint and the green trail was a welcomed challenge.

Nice loop with some flat areas and some steep, rocky areas. 20-foot Peavine Falls is nice when it has enough water, which it frequently does not. The Green Trail keeps going east on the ridgeline and ends down near the park office, so do not miss the right turn on the green-white connector to stay on this loop. Also, there is a nice overlook from the ridgetop Green Trail. Probably the most scenic hike at Oak Mountain though definitely not the longest.

Enjoyed the hike. Pretty stout terrain. Definitely moderate. Not for beginners unless you enjoy being super sore.

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!
