Lookout Mountain Parkway Series Post 2: Little River Canyon National Preserve

Frugal Family Travelers have been taking readers on a journey through the Lookout Mountain Parkway and along the way have been highlighting areas off the beaten path!   At the heart of the Lookout Mountain Parkway is the Little River Canyon National Preserve.   Within the preserve you will have access to numerous trails, swimming areas, the Little River Canyon, Little River Canyon Center and the spectacular Little River Falls.  Beauty abounds in the preserve.   You will want to plan adequate time to soak up all that it offers.   

Little River Canyon, Little River Canyon Center and Little River Falls

Cost: Free or honor box when applicable. 

Directions to the Little River Canyon Center:

4322 Little River Parkway, Fort Payne, AL 35967 (Note: The canyon may be viewed from various places within the preserve directly off the main road; Little River Falls is a short hike from the Canyon Center or a short 2 minute drive.)

The center features an HD movie about the canyon, exhibits, hiking trails, information about the preserve and a gift shop.  Adjacent to the center, by hike or short drive, is the spectacular Little River Falls!  One can observe the falls from a decked area with seating or take a short trail to get your feet wet and have a closer look.  Be sure to check the center's website for special programs offered throughout the year.
