Welti Falls – Trip Details

Getting to Welti Falls is a bit of a challenge, so start out with the directions below. From the intersection of County Road 703 and 747, you’ll go west for 2 miles and come to a bridge. You can park just before the bridge and hop onto the trail to the falls.

You will follow Brindley Creek up from Eightmile Creek toward Forest Ingram Lake. The falls are just below the lake.

It’s about 1/2 a mile to the falls and is a pretty easy walk. Just be careful on the rocks.

  1. This is not what it seems. The falls are actually on private property. The county has put up no parking signs along side county road 703 where this blog says you can park but no one seems to adhere to them. The sheriffs department and Alabama State Troopers have towed numerous vehicles. They have also gotten on their bullhorns and told people to get off the falls. People go up there and leave their trash etc. Some of us who live nearby wish people would stay away. This is not a tourist attraction.
