High Falls

One of the best nature spots around north east Alabama. Located in High Falls Park, off AL HWY 227 Northwest of Geraldine, Alabama is High Falls. This scenic waterfall is 35ft and is formed by Town Creek. When the water is high, the falls can sometimes span as much as 300ft across. This park is fairly small and definitely off the beaten path on Alabama’s back roads, so be sure to pay attention to which streets you’re on.

Chewacla Falls

Chewacla Falls

Chewacla Falls, located in Auburn at Chewacla State Park, is a 30ft waterfall that’s formed by the spillway of Chewacla Dam. Chewacla State Park is home to 8 hiking trails and the most popular trail, Mountain Laurel Trail, leads to Chewacla Falls. The park has a 26-acre lake, as well as its extensive mountain biking and hiking trails, all of which make a dip even more rewarding and are another reason to visit this gem in Alabama’s state park system. Chewacla State Park is also home to the highest point in Lee County, which means that it’s a great location for mountain bikers seeking the sort of elevation changes that give the sport its name.
