As has come up on a thread over at Hogewash!, I’ve been working on a documentary about various “secret” places around the state of Alabama. By secret, I mean places only the locals know. One of my favorite secret places is High Falls Park, near Geraldine, Alabama. I like it for a couple of reasons, but mainly just because of it’s breathtaking beauty.
I also like it because in the summer it is the home of the redneck daredevils. I’ve seen young kids, not much older than 6 or 7, leap from the falls. I think in the area it is a right of passage.
Finding the park isn’t easy. The signs leading to it are misleading at best. But the place is fairly well maintained. I recommend it to anyone looking for an off the beaten path place to visit in Alabama.
