Description

Oak Park Trail begins at Oak Park, which has plenty of parking along with a pavillion, playground, etc. The trail kiosk is behind the eastern concession, just follow the paved road to the rear of the park.

This is a singletrack trail and it climbs 400 feet to the Bankhead Trail, formerly a section of the Flat Rock Trail. There is a steady incline for the entire trail with a few switchbacks throughout. There are more switchbacks towards the end as you get closer to Bankhead Trail.

At 0.6 miles, the trail forks where a triangle of rocks has been laid out; stay right to keep on trail while bearing left takes you to the Buzzards Roost. At 0.75 mile, the trail meets back up with the Buzzards Roost where again you stay right. From here, the last 0.15 miles are the steepest you'll encounter.

The trail dead-ends at the Bankhead Trail shortly after the steep climb.
