Oak Mountain


Birmingham, AL
In the foothills of the Appalachians, Double Oak Mountain lies at the core of the nearly 10,000 acre Oak Mountain State Park, located just 20 minutes south of Birmingham in Pelham, Alabama. The slopes and valleys of the parallel ridgelines serve up miles of blissful single track and technical diversity.  The mountain bike trail system, dubbed the “Red Trail”, is near 25 miles and is part of an array of activities this Alabama State Park has to offer.  The Birmingham Urban Mountain Pedalers (BUMP) along with Alabama’s DCNR State Park Division, Shelby County and the City of Pelham have worked hand in hand to elevate the caliber of mountain biking at this venue.
