If you are looking for an awesome ride with great views be sure to ride Oak Mountain! Expect some sweet downhill runs and wonderful views of the Appalachian foothills.  As you ride Oak Mountain you will experience a wide variety of terrain from smooth worn trails to rocky downhill runs. One of my favorite parts of riding Oak Mountain is seeing an old home place ruins and the wide variety of wild plants and animals. It isn’t uncommon to come across deer grazing and a flock of turkeys crossing your path. The Red Trail at Oak Mountain State Park – Pelham
