Falling Rock Waterfall Hike

Waterfall in Falling Rocks,  Montevallo, Alabama

Falling Rocks Fall

Maybe you can see the guy repelling to the right. 

John heard about Falling Rocks from a co-worker, she made it sound like a great place to go hiking. The kick off though, it had a waterfall. One of John’s favorite things about hiking is having a primary destination (aka waterfalls). I personally just enjoy hiking whether there is an endpoint or not.

This trail is off of County Road 22. You will see a gate and a gravel road. You will walk until you see a fork- go left, then you will walk until you see a road on the right- turn right, then continue until you see a trail on the left-turn left. You will come up to a creek and you can either go straight or right. We chose to go to the right and follow the trail down on the right side of the cliff, down under the waterfall into the cave area.

I won’t lie it was a little rough going down, but it was a lot more rough coming up! While we were there, there were a couple of guys repelling, so if you go at the right time you might get a little bit of a show. We also came in contact with a a really friendly older couple. (Actually they knew the guys that were repelling) They chatted a little with us and he also asked where I was from, I replied with Alabaster. Then he told me I didn’t sound like a had an accent. I told him I was from Alabama. I decided to spare him of the details that I spent a good portion of growing up with a side of my family that was from the North. Sigh, talk about a stab to the heart. I love country accents. Moving forward though. We had a great  little adventure here.

A lot of reviews say it is easy, but I guess we are just out of shape. Nonetheless it is a fun hike. I thoroughly enjoyed going under the cave, and walking along and in the creek! Make sure to bring water shoes and extras socks! And of course water. It was only in the 70’s (degrees) and I thought I was going to burn up at some points.

  1. I need to get water shoes for this kind of hikes!! I’m excited to go on a few now that the weather is better 😀 Here in Utah a lot hikes are closed until April or so because of avalanche danger and such. So, hiking season starts now!

    • Yes! Water shoes are a freaking life saver! I can’t imagine having avalanches! That would make me so nervous. The only thing we really have is Tornadoes which are very scary, I am glad we don’t have many other natural disasters and not really bears either haha.
