High Falls

High Falls waterfall is considered a hidden treasure in Alabama to many local residents. Located within High Falls County Park, the High Falls waterfall is 35 feet high. The park also features a natural bridge at the bottom of the waterfalls. This 25-foot span of eroded rock features a large natural arch, affected by the flow of water over the 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 of the falls.
To cliff jump into the pools below the falls, or swim under the falls, walk downriver from the waterfall to the large cliff with a deep pool of water beneath. It is identifiable as it has a large rope hanging on the side of the cliff to climb back up.

High Falls is located approximately 90 miles east of Birmingham, 59 miles south of Huntsville, and 176 miles north of Montgomery. Access to the falls is on a loop trail that is just under a mile long. Dogs are allowed on the trail but must be kept on a leash.

To get to the falls, take Interstate 59 to Exit 218 in Fort Payne. Follow Highway 35 West to Rainsville. Turn south onto Highway 75 and head to Geraldine. At the town's only traffic light, turn onto Highway 227 North and follow the signs to High Falls Park.
