The Big Oak Trail forms the backbone of the trails in the southern half of the park. It is the boulevard to which several other trails connect. It, like most of the rest of the park is machine-cut singletrack and not particularly technical.

Access Info

The Big Oak Trail can be reached from Culler's Trail, Shale Barrens, and Bear Bottom Loop.
