      There is a 12-mile rim road along the canyon that provides nine scenic overlooks of the canyon and its waterfalls. There are also hiking trails down into the canyon. This is an exceptional drive in the fall for viewing the foliage. Limited seasonal camping is also available.

      If you go:
      Stop at the Visitor Center on AL-35 to get a map. Then drive to the Little River Falls Overlook across the bridge before entering the canyon on AL-176. Drive all the way to the Eberhard Overlook so that all stops on the way back are right turns.
