1.4 Miles Round Trip - Loop Trail

Noccalula Falls - Search Nearby - Added by Edward Day

Close to downtown Gadsen, AL, this 90-ft waterfall is accessible by foot, 'train', or car.

Noccalula Falls is definitely beautiful from the top, however, you can really get an idea of the pure power of this waterfall by finding your way to the bottom. One way to get to the bottom is to go through the park entrance and pay the $6 admission fee to be able to reach the bottom.

Another option is to follow the Black Creek Trail, which is a gravel pathway that can be entered beside the Noccalula Falls wedding chapel. Follow that trail and look for a small offshoot trail on the left after about half a mile. It is a very steep little trail to get down that requires some scrambling down rock, but once you reach the bottom, there is a nice trail that leads you to the bottom of the falls.

It is also possible to view the falls from outside the park, near the campground parking lot.
