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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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!

I live in New Orleans and for a 5 hour drive it's definitely worth the trip. The hiking trails are great and the mountain biking is amazing . great views and all the streams and the waterfalls make the hiking and biking even nicer . been to Oak Mountain 4 times so far . The camp sights are great .

Great trail to prepare yourself for difficult trails throughout the southeast.

Connected to the white trail and then red to return back to my car instead of backtracking!

Bring a camping hammock for your break its perfect!

Trail was great, went the day after a rainstorm and saw a great many natural springs. Good views at the Kings chair and along the rim trail. Gets 4 stars because it's very crowded. Please, practice "leave no trace", a good bit of trash near PVF

Overall good hike. Markings and maps are terrible for all the trails, but the trails themselves are wonderful.

Not for beginners. We took this one the first time we hiked and it wasn't pretty. Have hiked it a few times since and it does get easier. The first mile is pretty hard with the elevation gain. Overall it is a great day hike with some good views and plenty of rocks to rest on. Please take lots of water and be ready for a challenge if you are new to hiking. We started at the North Trail head took the first left at the blue trail turned right on the orange connector till we intersected with the red bike trail and then followed that back out to the North Trail head. Look out for the cyclists on the red trail.

Started at the North Trailhead and went the 1.5 miles up to a split off called "Eagle's Nest." The view was pretty cool and you can climb up on a rock for even better views, but the real magic of this place is up at the next area called, "King's Chair".

Kings Chair is just a little bit past Eagles Nest, and the view is spectacular. There's a few good spots to get a good view, and the trails are all very well maintained.

I'll definitely be coming back here with my ENO hammock and a good book. Well worth the effort it takes to get there.

I use this trail to test new equipment/shoes or pack weight. Great for that or letting a friend see if they would enjoy hiking. I use the north trail head and make a loop using the orange connector to the white trail and back out to the trailhead. Nice little hike. map link below. Takes a morning or afternoon to hike it and should be around 6.0 miles or so.
