Lookout Mountain Parkway Series Post 1: Noccalula Falls




Frugal Family Travelers recently embarked on an adventure to explore the Lookout Mountain Parkway!  Spanning for approximately 93 miles from Gadsden, AL to Chattanooga, TN, the parkway offers mountain views, hiking, birding, waterfalls and small towns with a rich history!

When thinking of the Lookout Mountain Parkway, many may recall visits to Ruby Falls, Rock City and possibly even an exciting trip up the incline railway!  However, on this trip, our focus was to find experiences off the beaten path! This post and future posts in the series will highlight our discoveries in a effort to inspire other Frugal Family Travelers to explore some of these great places!


Series Post 1:  Noccalula Falls 

Directions

1500 NOCCALULA ROAD, GADSDEN, AL, 35904


Cost

Free (if just viewing falls from parking area);  For full access to park: Adults $6.00;Seniors (55+) $4.00;Youth (4-12) $3.00;Children FREE

Note:  cabins, RV/tent sites available 

Noccalulla Falls Park features the best view of the 90 ft falls and is therefore well worth the admission price.  Park offerings include access to the authentic pioneer village, the 5 mile gorge trail to the base of the falls, a petting zoo and train which circles the park.  We were lucky that our visit was during the Christmas season, when the park was transformed with an amazing display of lights.   During our visit the area had experienced an extreme drought and therefore Noccalula Falls was not nearly as impressive as it is would be during a typical visit.
