by Sassy417

We spent a full day at Noccalula Falls Park touring the area and had a great time while there learning a lot about the history of this landmark. Located in Gadsden, AL. The historic Noccalula Falls cascade over 95 feet into a beautiful ravine. This breathtaking area is a park with trails, gardens, artifacts, picnic areas, and a 130 site campground, and even a train which carries you thruout the park for a one mile train ride departing the station,passing the falls en route to the pioneer village (which we rode).
The Park is open daily 9-dusk, Admission free however to tour the garden and village grounds is only $2. over 60 and under 12 $1. Train fare only $1.50. over 60 and under 12 for train is $1.
