Little River Falls is a "MUST SEE" when you visit the Preserve. It is located near the Little River Canyon Visitor Center off Highway 35 next to the bridge in Gaylesville, Alabama (the bridge is the boundary between Gaylesville and Fort Payne). This is the first stop to make on your scenic tour of the park entering from the north. The formation of Little River Canyon begins here with the 45-foot waterfall.
The amount of water going over the falls depends on the amount of rainfall. In the winter and early spring the water level is high. Expert level Kayakers love to kayak the river. During the summer and early fall, the water level is much lower. No matter the season; Little River Falls is a very beautiful place to visit.
There is no charge for this area.
This is a beautiful area to bring the family for a day outdoors. The 100-car parking lot has spaces for RV's, buses and other large vehicles. There is a picnic area with several tables and barbeque grills in a shaded area at the end of the parking lot. Restrooms are available in the center of the parking lot.
