Trail Description
About this trail
18 mile loop that includes singletrack, access road, old hiking trails, special sections (such as the ROCK GARDEN, and BLOOD ROCK). Kept in very good condition by the BUMP club. For extra information you can call Crestline Cycle in Birmingham and someone their could probably help you out. The USA MTB team trained here a month before the Olympics which says something about the quality of the trails.

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....

Q: I am planning a trip through the South later this year. If I could only ride one, which trail system should I ride and why -- Oak Mountain or Coldwater Mountain? -mongwolf

A: Coldwater mountain would be more long climbs if you want to ride from the top down. Oak mountain has varied terrain with other riding areas within an hours drive. Both are fun. I would guess oak mountain has more riders on any given day but I personally haven't had any issues with traffic on the trails. Birmingham also offers more post biking activities.

Review: Very good trail system. You can link segments short or long, easy or rad, or pack a little of everything into one big ol' loop with tons of variety. There are monster climbs to be had, along with long descents, and no shortage of rocks and roots to keep you on your toes. Impressive network being so close to a population center. Unfortunately, you can hear road noise for most of the ride, so you never get as much of a feeling of being "out there" as you think you should given the dense vegetation.

Review: After 2 days and 100 miles on OMSP, I see why this has been made an IMBA Epic. There is a little for everyone, The Lake Trail for beginners, lots for ameaturs including Jekyl and Hyde, and good technical for the experts including Blood Trail and Boulder Ridge. I rode Friday and Saturday. There was almost no one in the trail on Friday and Saturday was quite a few in the easier trails and not many on the more challenging ones. I would recommend a full suspension and sidewall protection for your tires. I tore a sidewall on Centipede Trail. Overall, very fun trail system.

Review: Awesome ride. Until last weekend, it had been many years since my last ride at Oak Mtn. There have been many changes made to make a great ride even better. We did miss one turn, ended up on the hardtop and missed some good downhill, :(. Also found myself on a horse trail at the base of Johnson's mountain... Like the small new jumps that have been added.

Review: Great trail well marked and maintained. Plenty of variety from ez beginner to full sketch expert. The flow / jump line down lighting was a blast. Huge park with plenty to do for the whole family.

Review: Drove from Oklahoma to check these trails out. They were nice, but not... epic. The trails themselves offer a variety of obstacles and some nice flow, but lacked in big swoops, drops, and scenic views that I was expecting from such a highly rated trail. They are well maintained and mostly clearly marked, although at one point we briefly were lost on a horse trail, but quickly back tracked to a road. I enjoyed having maps scattered throughout trail junctions to help reorient myself. Facilities are nice and clean. It has a variety of beginner to advanced level trails. Something for everyone with plenty of mileage to never get stale. Certainly better than the trails we have in my home state, but again, not quite the amazing views or big drops that I was expecting.
