HLRT Waterfall

to preserve and protect the Little River watershed

The Hulsey Little River Trust is a non-profit land trust made up of volunteers who are passionate about protecting one of Alabama's most spectacular places. The Little River is a unique river because it is the only river that forms and flows almost its entire length on top of a mountain. From the top of Lookout Mountain in northeast Alabama, the river rushes over Little River Falls and drops into a deep canyon. Sometimes called the Grand Canyon of the East, in places the canyon rim drops 500-600 feet from the bluffs to the canyon floor. More than 100 rare or endangered plants and animals are found in the area. The Little River and its tributaries provide clean water, quality habitat, recreation and beauty. Hulsey Little River Trust works to preserve and protect this amazing place for generations to come.

With your help, the Hulsey Little River Trust acquired 13 acres on Johnnies Creek in the Little River watershed of northeast Alabama. Johnnies Creek is a major tributary of the Little River. It flows into Little River Canyon just upstream of Canyon Mouth Park at the southern end of Little River Canyon National Preserve. HLRT purchased 3 acres on the south side of Johnnies Creek in 2011 and secured an additional 10-acre donation on the north side of Johnnies Creek in April of 2012. The 3-acre parcel is accessible by paved road on the Little River Canyon National Preserve Scenic Drive. The property boasts a scenic overlook of Johnnies Creek canyon, a spectacular view of the confluence of Johnnies Creek with the Little River and a small spring. THANK YOU, this would not have been possible without your support!
