A bit more overgrown than other trails at Oak Mountain, the White Trail begins at the park’s South Trailhead and passes by Peavine Falls. The trail continues along gently flowing Peavine Branch before gradually heading up to the highest perch in the park, Shackleford Point. Here the trail turns rocky as it follows the ridgeline, with views of mountains to either side. The trek includes a visit to Maggie’s Glen, a favorite spot for sitting along the banks of the creek and relaxing. Trail Surface: Dirt; some rocky areas.
