Hiking Distance Configurations


Please observe social distancing guidelines!

This park is provided by Alabama Power Company and provides a wonderful setting with picnic tables, seating area, and observation platform for probably the best view of Lake Martin.

CRATA’s first trails constructed in 2004 consist of three (3) trails for a total of 7.2 miles.  All three trails are tied together so you can hike from 1 mile to 7 miles with several combinations.

Great views of Lake Martin, mountain longleaf pine, native azaleas, and mountain laurel are just a few of the interesting things that will delight the hiker.

Listed below are the combinations that make the trails at Overlook Park a unique hiking experience.
