Hike to Peavine Falls

Alabama Peavine Trailhead

Added by Edward Day

Peavine falls is a great place to photograph a beautiful 65-foot waterfall.

The Peavine falls parking is located at the pin. You can also follow signs to the South Trailhead and from there, follow signs to Peavine Falls. Signs are clearly marked at the parking lot leading you down to the top of the falls or the bottom of the falls. Pictures from the top of the falls are difficult to take due to the lush vegetation around the top, but the bottom is a great place to set up for an awesome shot.

For the best results when taking pictures at Peavine, going after a nice heavy rain would be optimal. If not, Peavine tends to be just a trickle of water. Also, shooting at sunset allows the sun to peek through the trees behind the waterfall. Due to the thickness of tree coverage however, sunrise would not be the best lighting.

No Waterfalls

We came here in mid August and hiked to the waterfall overlook only to come to find it has been completely dried up. Water might be present in different seasons but for us it was a bit of a let down.
