Great trail, great park

I travel to Oak Mountain State Park as often as I can and have hiked and biked almost every trail in the park. All of them are great, and this one is no exception. Well-kept trails (most of the time, at least), beautiful forest, and not an over-abundance of people to pass on the trail. This is definitely one of the best scenic views in the park. Be sure to bring plenty of water though, the hike is fairly hot in most seasons (this is Alabama, after all...). For anyone who wants to add to the experience, I like to supplement hikes through the sport of geocaching. There are tons along this trail, and they take you to some lesser-known spots!
