Beautiful, Serene, Amazing!
These words barely describe how peaceful this park is.
Oak Mountain State Park is a 9,940-acre park at the top of Double Oak Mountain in Alabama. It is Alabama’s largest state park. Close to Birmingham, Oak Mountain is a perfect place to camp while visiting the state’s largest city.
Oak Mountain has over 50 miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking. The Red Trail has even been included on the International Mountain Biking Association’s(IMBA) list of EPIC rides.
But there is much more than just biking to do at Oak Mountain. It also has Flipside Watersports cable skiing, boat rentals, basketball courts, nature programs, Peavine Falls, an Interpretive Center, an 18-hole golf course, and a driving range. And don’t pass up spending time at the beach and swimming area.
I didn’t get a chance to fish or rent one of the boats, but I have heard that it is some of the best fishing around. I also understand that they have a demonstration farm and horseback riding facilities, although I didn’t see either while I was there. I did, however, see the beautiful views and how serene the atmosphere is. The beauty is utterly breathtaking.
