If we try to do these on a long weekend, where is a good B &B that’s centrally located near them all?
I would either pick the western part of the state near Bankhead National Forest, or travel to the Mentone area to see DeSoto Falls and the Little River Canyon National Preserve. I’ve never personally stayed at a B&B around here, so I’m afraid I can’t help there, sorry!
I will be heading north on I 65. I have seen Nocallula Falls, DeSoto and Little River
Are their others not far off 65 north
The easiest thing to do is take a look at the map on the home page at https://alabamawaterfalls.com/ and pick out one along your route!
Is there a list, or book of all waterfalls in Alabama?
Hi Cheri, are you looking for a coffee table book or something that you can travel with? I only know of the book by Mark Morrison.
Many of these waterfalls are in the W. Bankhead National Forrest and they are poorly marked . More signs and clearly marked entrants to these beautiful products of nature are needed. If you are not a local but want to visit these hidden gems you may find it difficult to find them.
I’m not local and have had no trouble finding them, but the standard rules of knowing how to use a map and compass, having a partner and telling folks where you’re going, and taking plenty of supplies for emergencies certainly apply.
