The Oak Mountain State Park White Trail, or the Shackleford Point Trail, is 6.4 miles long (one way). You must turn around and come back the way you came or pick up a connector trail to go a different way. It is easiest to access from the North Trailhead and follows a path similar to the Blue Trail but at a lower elevation. The White Trail does climb to the highest point in Oak Mountain State Park, which is known as Shackleford Point at an elevation of 1,260 feet. This is the steepest climb in the park. The White Trail ends at the Peavine Falls parking lot.

The White, Blue, and Yellow Trails all begin at the North Trailhead, which is located on John Findley Drive about 6 miles inside the park if you are coming from the front gate. If you use the back entrance, it is about 1.5 – 2 miles inside the gate.

Combining this trail with the Yellow Trail, Blue Trail or Green Trail can provide a loop, but be aware that the loop is quite long, strenuous and will take most of the day to hike.
