The views are amazing! Accessible, clean, beautiful. No real info center and very modest restroom. The ranger was most helpful with this and info on other area activities.

The area had a lot of rain and the falls was flowing fast and was so pretty. The area is well kept and plenty of parking.

We hike Little River Canyon down to Martha’s Falls every time we are in town, and it never disappoints! Our 8 and 11 year old absolutely love it.

First time to visit but not the last time. We will make it a point to allow more time the next time we are through here. It was absolutely gorgeous and deep in history.

The views were pretty even in late Fall. We stayed at the Little River RV park which we also recommend. Do not forget to go to the Alabama Fan Club store also.

We only did the 11 or 12 mile scenic drive. This would be AMAZING about 3 weeks ago. Today it was beautiful, but a lot of the trees are already dead. About half are dead and the other half are still beautiful fall colors. We...More

I've never been fishing there and have never seen anyone else fishing. You could probably fish with a simple rod and reel, but fly fishing would probably be difficult in this area.
