Peavine Falls, Oak Mountain State Park
Photo By Jackson Echols

  • Title: Peavine Falls, Oak Mountain State Park
  • State/Province/Region: Alabama
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: AL-119
  • Nearest Town: Pelham, AL
  • Brief Directions: From I-65, take Cahaba Valley Road (AL-119) exit. Go South on AL-119 and immediately turn left on to State Park Road. Go approximately 1.5 miles to the park entrance. You can reach Peavine Falls by paying your $2 per car fee at the entrance and asking the worker for directions. Peavine Falls is hidden in a back corner of the park, and can be reached by a short walk of about ten minutes down and fifteen back up.
  • Notes: The trail to Peavine Falls is easily accessible for all hikers, however, the last part involves scrambling down a slippery slope to get to the bottom of the falls. Waterproof shorts and river sandals would come in handy once you are at the base of the falls, so that you can position yourself in the runoff to get a dramatic perspective. Expect to get wet trying to get a good shot, I know I did!
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Gear: Wide-Angle Zoom (16-35 length) for dramatic perspective on falls

    Very nice set of "Arches" Stephen. Wasn't sure, but thought someone said one of the famous landmarks fell? Really enjoyed the "Double Windows" when there!

    That moose is a "spike" i.e. a very young juvenile, probably on his first year away from mom. His antler's will fill out further in the next few years.

    Very interesting post Donna and Mike on Moose/Antlers. Not sure what may have caused the change in antlers, but pretty sure the one will end up looking like one of these in a few years.
