Hike to the Sipsey Wilderness Waterfalls
Alabama › Sipsey Wilderness
Added by The Outbound Collective
Called the “land of 1,000 waterfalls,” Sipsey is among the most popular hiking/backpacking areas in Alabama.
The 25,000-acre Sipsey Wilderness is a landscape of canyons, ravines, sandstone cliffs, and, most notably, waterfalls.
While there are many more waterfalls to choose from, three possible options are Kinlock Falls, Fall Creek Falls, and Feather Hawk Falls. Kinlock is accessible by car on Forest Road 210.
You can reach Fall Creek Falls (90 ft tall) via a short hike on Sipsey River Trail. Alternatively, the 75 ft-Feather Hawk Falls is located off of Randolph Trail – a small side trail off of Randolph following a creek will take you to the falls in 0.5 miles.
