AL - Fort Payne (AL-176) - Little River Canyon Natl Preserve

LINK This is a beautiful scenic area, but unless you have a dual sport motorcycle it's unlikely that you will be able to access most of the park. Free primitive camping is available but you must travel down an unimproved road that even the Park Service admits that only 4WD vehicles should consider, and you have to cross some creeks.

If that has not deterred you, consider this place carefully. You'll see some beautiful kayak and canoe areas and probably get some photos that most others will never have the opportunity to take. The 11 mile ride along the canyon, State Hwy 176 is beautiful and there is no fee to take it.

$3 Vehicle fee admits to the picnic areas.
