The Oak Mountain area is located in North Shelby County, bordered by Oak Mountain and Double Oak Mountain on the south and the Cahaba River on the North. Many homes have fabulous views and Oak Mountain State park borders many of the properties. The older neighborhoods have large trees and this valley in my opinion is one of the prettiest parts of the state.
