$5 per person to get in. Easy parking access to trail head without driving far into the park. Green Trail connects to the White Trail, which will take you right by the falls. A couple of challenging spots to get your heart rate up, but very enjoyable! Seasonally, the falls are dry.

The green trail is the most difficult trail at Oak Mountain State Park due to the steep terrain. Beautiful rock formations and views.

The falls are very beautiful after its been raining. Drive to parking at top of mountain. Hike is steep once you get to falls area. Take the time to hike down away from falls for some beautiful creek views down the gulley. Good rocks to sit on and have a snack. We did this exact loop today. The white to green (ridge) trail connector is steep going up but well marked and worth it bc the green trail is on a ridge looking off both sides. In winter you have great views.

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

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

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

challenging hike but worth it

We originally we're going to do the loop, but got to the waterfall, set up the hammock and then decided to come on back. We got to the falls around 9:30 and only one other person was there so it was great! As we were coming back up around 11, there were more people. The waterfall was beautiful! It just rained so it was really flowing. We brought our swimsuits in hopes to jump in, but the water was pretty cold and the pool was shallow. I'm sure if someone was really wanting to, laying in the pool and playing under the waterfall would be a blast. Trail started off as mostly a road and the last half was trail, pretty rocky and steep. Coming back up felt like we were going straight up but wasn't too crazy. Rocks can be a bit slippery though. Overall, fun trail and good hangout. Also, 5 bucks a person to get in.
