Peavine Falls, located at Oak Mountain State Park in Pelham, Alabama is a beautiful waterfall that’s formed from a wild stream flowing from the top of Oak Mountain. The way this 65ft waterfall got its name is the fact it can twist and turn like a “peavine.”

Peavine Falls is an approximately 65 foot tall, spring fed waterfall in Oak Mountain State Park. Peavine Falls has more water in it after a heavy rain. It is a steep climb in and out of the waterfall if you want to see the front, and to play in the pool of water below. The water is cold, so be prepared.

The Green Trail, known as the Peavine Falls Trail, begins near the Park Office/Beach area on Terrace Drive. It is the shortest trail at 1.9 miles long, but it is also the steepest. The Green Trail goes from an elevation of approximately 550 feet to approximately 1,100 feet. The Green Trail doesn’t lead directly to Peavine Falls (the waterfall) but ends at the Peavine Falls parking lot where you can get on the White or Blue Trail that will take you to the falls. About 1 mile up the trail from Terrace Drive, you begin a climb from approximately 800 feet to approximately 1,020 feet.
