“Storms brings awesome falls”
Review of High Falls Park

High Falls Park
Ranked #1 of 2 things to do in Geraldine
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 May 2017

Another beautiful place to visit if you're in the area - High Falls was showing off after several days of rain and we were blessed to see her in her glory. Recommend making it a stop off if you are around DeSoto State Park and are into waterfalls. Small county park "store" to leave a donation, a nice bridge, and if you work at it you can get a few shots of the falls. Was told during a drought there will not be a drop over the falls...timing is important.

Reviewed 14 February 2017

We were staying at Guntersville State Park and decided to explore the area. Without prior information, we saw a small sign pointing off Hwy 227 to High Falls State Park. Cell phone coverage had been spotty on top of this mountain, but fortunately it started working and led us (after many twists and turns) directly to this out of the way hidden gem. If you plan to make a visit, try to get written directions before you go; relying on cell phone directions could be risky. There are many turns from the highway. You will pass large farms with nice houses as well as dilapidated trailers and homes. Entry is free with a box available for donations. There are plenty of picnic tables and we found the restrooms open and clean enough. There is a nice building with offices, but they were closed on this Saturday in February. This site is not good for the elderly or people with mobility issues. The walking is on a paved surface, but a long downhill walk to the falls and a hard, steep trek back up the hill. Alabama suffered a severe drought in 2016, but rainfall during December and through February of 2017 meant that the falls had plenty of water and were lovely. There is also a pedestrian bridge to the other side of Town Creek and hiking trails.
