Q: Which trail would you guys suggest for beginners? My husband and I are looking to spend the day at Oak Mountain this weekend. Take a lunch, the eno hammocks, and our bikes for a day out. Suggestions? -mrskd14
A: Answering my own question in hopes that it will help others in the future. We found (through this awesome site!) our LBS (Cahaba Cycles) and they were having a beginner mountain bike ride. We joined them and had an absolutely wonderful while learning so much! We did the Lake trail to the end and back. It was a nice, fun trail with enough ups and downs to keep us noobs on our toes while still having a blast. The views of the lake were stunning and the trails clearly marked.
Q: My wife and I have bikes and have the child carriers on back of them for our two kids.. Is this ride a little too difficult for our family cruising style? -Guest
A: I would say most of the trails would be to difficult for what your wanting to do....The lake trail would be the one that would be the easiest for you to navigate with child carriers...but there are bike lanes on both sides of almost all of the roads in the park....
