Lookout Mountain Parkway

Winding from Chattanooga, Tennessee, to Gadsden, Alabama, the Lookout Mountain Parkway passes through Walker County and has been named among the “Most Scenic Drives in America” by Reader’s Digest. The roads through the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park are well marked, and there are plenty of stop sites for a shady picnic, rest or a short walk.

Little River Canyon

You will not want to miss touring the eleven-mile scenic drive is located on the western side of the canyon along AL Highway 176. The Scenic drive allows the visitor to view the splendor of the canyon from a series of overlooks. Each overlook has a pull-off to park and enjoy the scenery; very little walking is required.
