Mardis Mill Falls is conveniently situated within 45 minutes of Birmingham and is great for a day trip. Unfortunately, some reports are that it’s become a party spot on the weekends and has the litter and glass bottles to show for it. So, be sure to wear some closed-toe shoes just in case you come across some broken glass when you visit.

Thankfully, the latest update is that it’s clean again, so that’s great to hear!

Regardless, don’t let that scare you. This really is a beautiful waterfall and swimming hole.

After passing over the bridge, pull off the road to the right and make your way down to see the falls from there. The hike is short, so you’ll have all the time you want to enjoy them before heading out.

  1. Thanks to the efforts lead by The friends of The Locust Fork River. flfr.org , monthly clean ups are organized and the area is staying much cleaner.

  2. I just went today and read earlier that it was littered, had broken glass and smelled. I didn’t find it littered and only saw a couple of pieces of broken glass. As far as the smell, it smells like sulfur. I did however enjoy it very much. My GPS took me down several single lane roads which was odd because it’s right off a Hwy but it was a very enjoyable ride and views were beautiful. I had been disappointed by attempting two other waterfalls that are advertised and aren’t accessible because they are on private land. I have had my knee replaced twice but still able to get to a view of the falls!

    1. Thank you for the update, Martha! I’m glad to hear that it’s been cleaned up recently. I try to keep the posts updated as I hear status about access, so just let me know which of the other articles need to be updated.
