Made possible by our incredible partners at Legacy Environmental, you can now learn all about your park through a project called "Sharing Oak Mountain: Getting To Know Your Park Through Interpretive Signage!" These signs are found along the Treetop Interpretive Nature Trail where you can learn interesting things such as how to be a better birder, the park's amazing geology, why waterways are important, and more! 

 

Adjacent to the Treetop Interpretive Nature Trail, is the Treetop Boardwalk with 6 enclosures that house 11 non-releasable birds of prey! These birds are cared for by the Alabama Wildlife Center and feedings happen daily around 11:00am! Bird species include owls, hawks, and vultures! 

 

The Treetop Interpretive Nature Trail and the Treetop Boardwalk are located in our day-use area. This trail begins across from the Beach Access Parking lot, and ends at the Oak Mountain Interpretive Center and the Alabama Wildlife Center. This trail is considered beginner level and is approximately .5 miles long one way.
