The hike to Maggies Glen from the North Trailhead in Oak Mtn State Park is an excellent hike for beginners or for a family that wants to enjoy a Sunday afternoon. This particular hike should only take an hour or two. You start the hike at the North Trailhead and walk a couple of hundred yards up the North Trailhead to the sign which marks the direction to Maggies Glen. You then follow the white trail towards Maggies Glen. The hike at this point is fairly level and quite relaxing. After traveling approximately a mile (the midpoint of the hike) you will be rewarded by reaching Maggies Glen. The Glen offers a great point to stop and rest. The Glen has benches which were built by a Boy Scout for his Eagle Scout project and has a lovely stream which produces very relaxing sounds as it flows over rocks in the area.
