Blue Professional Reviews and Guides
"Although not the most difficult trail at Oak Mountain State Park, the Blue Trail does have some long, constant climbs for the first two miles of the trip up the side of Double Oak Mountain. Once on top, with the help of a little bushwhacking, you will be rewarded with superb views of surrounding mountains and the valley below. Alabama is blessed with some beautiful country—and the foresight to protect it. While each Alabama state park has something special, none offers more variety than Oak Mountain State Park. Located just fifteen minutes south of Birmingham, Oak Mountain’s offerings run the gamut from a championship eighteen-hole golf course to world-class mountain bike trails to vacation cottages. There is a horse stable where trail rides can be organized and even a demonstration farm. The park is the home of the Alabama Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, which offers shelter and a place of recuperation for injured or orphaned animals."
