High Falls waterfall is considered a hidden treasure in Alabama to many local residents. Located within High Falls County Park, High Falls waterfall is 35 feet high and close to 300 feet wide. In seasons of heavy rains, the entire width of the waterfall is overflowing. The park also features a natural bridge at the bottom of the waterfalls. This 25-feet span of rock features a large arch, eroded by the flow of water over hundreds of years. A pedestrian bridge spanning the gorge takes hikers to the far side of Town Creek. Positioned a few yards above High Falls, the bridge provides a picture-perfect view upstream and downstream to the falls.
Open daily 10-6 or dusk.
