A special place in the Southern Appalachians Little River is unique because it flows for most of its length atop Lookout Mountain in northeast Alabama. Forested uplands, waterfalls, canyon rims and bluffs, pools, boulders, and sandstone cliffs offer settings for a variety of recreational activities. Natural resources and cultural heritage come together to tell the story of the Preserve, a special place in the Southern Appalachians.

Beautiful! When you go after significant rain, you'll see several smaller falls and beautiful rushing creeks.

This trail was definitely easy enough for two dogs to tag along. One dog is around the age of 1 years old and the other a 11 week old puppy and they were able to do it! Then took them to Marsha's Falls which was awesome! A must see!

If you are looking to go cliff jumping, goes to Martha's falls. This place isn't for cliff jumping. There is a gravel parking lot and it's about a 15 minute hike to the Hippy Hole (spot where locals go cliff jumping).

Easy trail and it's not a bad walk in the woods, but the 'overlook' and beaver 'pond' are underwhelming.

Beautiful views of the waterfall.
