Description/Notes: I think this falls is the most beautiful in Alabama. It is nestled at the head of a rocky chasm containing Caney Creek and both Upper and Lower Caney Falls. Featured in the book "Alabama's Canyons" which is one THE authorities on the Sipsey Wilderness area aside from Walking Sipsey, which is just north of the falls. Note that the parking situation is in flux as of February 2019 and I've removed directions until a more permanent solution can be found.

Upper Caney Falls is actually a twin waterfall, but the side fall is mostly seasonal, here is a submitted shot of it flowing:
