Lacefield Falls is located in Cane Creek Canyon Nature Preserve, a 700-acre privately protected and maintained scenic natural area in the Little Mountain region in northwestern Alabama. A large swath of wild streams, box canyons, waterfalls, rock shelters, and sandstone bluffs encompassing 700 acres remains nearly as pristine and wild as it did centuries ago.
The preserve is situated around a complex of small sandstone canyons in the upper portion of the Cane Creek watershed of the Tennessee River basin. Along with Lacefield Falls, other favorite areas include rock shelters that were home to the state’s earliest native Americans, glades of unusual wildflowers, lush boulder gardens, house-sized blocks of sandstone and deep cliff shelters.
The preserve is open year-round during daylight hours at no charge for hiking and other outdoor educational and recreational activities. A visitor’s sign-In log and trail maps are available at the welcome kiosk. Signing-in before entering the preserve property is mandatory. Leave No Trace rules apply for all visitors to the preserve.
