Salt Creek Falls - Trip Details

As a large family, we find renting a home for a night much more relaxing than a hotel, and it's so nice to have a place nearby to crash after a long day of hiking! You can find nice, affordable homes on Vrbo.

As one of the better cascade waterfalls in Alabama, Salt Creek Falls offers a nice waterfall with a cool swimming hole below the falls for those warm summer days. Although it may look like a fun slide down, don't make that mistake as climbing and sliding are very dangerous given the steep rocks and unsure footing.

When you get there, look for a small gravel parking area with a small trail starting at the mound of dirt. The falls are a short walk, but the tough part is the descent to check out the pool below the falls.

Just remember before you stay too late in the afternoon, you'll be climbing back up after a long day swimming and in the sun!
