Scenic Drive

AL Hwy 176 / Scenic Drive in the fall season
Scenic Drive in the Fall (Highway 176)

The eleven-mile scenic drive is located on the western side of the canyon along AL Highway 176 (off AL Highway 35). This area is located near Fort Payne, Alabama.

The scenic drive begins with Little River Falls Boardwalk Overlook and ends at Eberhart Point Overlook.

The Scenic drive allows the visitor to view the splendor of the canyon from a series of overlooks. Each overlook has a pull-off to park and enjoy the scenery; very little walking is required.

Touring the scenic drive and the overlooks is free of charge. Overlooks are open during daylight hours only. The road is narrow and has many curves and turns. Obey the speed limit and watch out for other vehicles, bicycle riders, and wildlife in the road.
