Oak Mountain has numerous hikes that are suitable to the average hiker. These trails span the full length of the park. There are also several connector trails available to get the hiker from one trail head to another. The Yellow Green connector is located adjacent to Double Oak Lake and connect the Yellow trail, starting at the South Trailhead to the Green trail, near the Treetop Nature Trail. We’ve included this connector as part of our mission to fully map and document Oak Mountain’s trail system.
There’s not a lot to see along this path except for hardwoods and pine trees. The trail is mainly sand and clay with few rocks and few inclines. Along the trail you will pass two geocaches that can be a quick grab.
The south trail head is located closest to the main entrance to Oak Mountain. Off Cahaba Valley Valley at the I-65 junction, take State Park Rd to John Findley Drive. Continue through the main entrance 3 miles to Terrace Drive, turn left and continue 1-1/2 miles to the south trail head.
