Everyone In Alabama Needs To Take This One Easy And Magnificent Hike
Stephens Gap, located in Jackson County, is one of Alabama’s must-see caves. A true hidden gem, this amazing 150-foot cave, which includes a spectacular waterfall, is one of the Southeast’s most beloved caves.
Rattlesnake Saloon- sporting a distinct setting under an ancient rock bluff, this saloon serves up delish Rustler Burgers, sided by Skunk Rings, Snake Eyes & Tails and Bronco Bits- which translates to fried onions, jalapenos, green beans and dill pickles with dipping sauce. The huge outdoor stage offers the perfect spot to hear some live Muscle Shoals music. (If you’re too tired to drive home, owner William Foster provides unique sleeping options in a couple of repurposed grain bins.)
Mushroom Rock, Little River Canyon National Preserve, Alabama. Several decades ago, a road crew constructing the original scenic drive is credited with saving this canyon landmark. Plans called for the rock formation we now call Mushroom Rock to be removed. Construction staff refused to blast it away. The crew built the road around it instead.
