Noccalula Falls

Natural Area, Lake, River, or Waterfall
Misty morning at the falls. – Kay Moore, Gadsden

Named after a Creek Indian princess, Noccalula Falls stands 90 feet tall and is one of the most visited natural attractions in the state. When rain conditions are normal, the waterfall is around 20 feet with a smaller waterfall located a little to the right of the higher fall. While heavy rains cause the two falls to merge into one wider waterfall. Located in the 250-acres Noccalula Falls Park in Gadsden, Alabama, Noccalula Falls attracts visitors from near and far for its breathtaking beauty and picturesque moments.

Recreational Opportunities

Located within the 250-acre park is the Black Creek Trail, a 1.7 mile crushed stone path with beautiful scenery along the Black Creek Gorge. The Trail starts at Noccalula Falls Wedding Chapel. Intersecting the main trail are over five miles of groomed, single-track trails perfect for walking, running, and mountain-biking.


Seasons Accessible

Open all seasons. Hours for the park are 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. daily.
