Fort Payne

Fort Payne is located in the northeastern corner of Alabama. The town is an excellent base for exploring the Little River Canyon, now protected as a National Preserve. The Little River flows for most of its length atop Lookout Mountain. The river and canyon systems are spectacular Appalachian Plateau landscapes any season of the year. Forested uplands, waterfalls, canyon rims and bluffs, stream riffles and pools, boulders, and sandstone cliffs offer settings for a variety of recreational activities. Natural resources and cultural heritage come together to tell the story of the Preserve, a special place in the Southern Appalachians.
