Joseph Caylor… When most people think of Lookout Mountain, it's typically Tennessee and Georgia, but never Alabama. A good majority of this mountain lies in Alabama near Fort Payne, and the Little River meanders through it. While there are hiking trails, the road that follows the canyon is worthy of going there in and of itself. Words and pictures can't describe the Little River Canyon. Seeing the waterfalls, picnicking beside the canyon cliffs, are just a few memorable moments from this jewel of places that hopefully you can visit yourself.
