An easy walk for the hardwood enthusiast. Large historic oaks grace the pathway.

Yellow-blazed Big Oak Trail is named for some of the 200 year old oaks that grace the easy 0.75-mile trail. The trail terminates at the road just prior to Campground B. This trail is especially nice for viewing spring wildflowers and the trail's namesake. A resting bench is found at the terminus where one must turn around and retrace their steps back to trailhead.

Directions: From Clarksville, VA, Occoneechee State Park is on U.S. 58, 1.5 miles east of Clarksville in Mecklenburg County which rests on the North Carolina border. After entering the park and passing the contact station, turn left and follow the main road a short distance to trailhead parking on the right. This is well marked.
