Swimming at Hippie Hole 7.14.19 w/Cahaba Sierra Group

July 14, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

Swimming at the Hippie Hole (aka Martha’s Falls) in Little River Canyon is a lot of fun! There are many places to jump into the water. After we swim we will also check out Little River Falls and maybe Blue Hole across the road.

This is a joint meetup with Cahaba Sierra Group and the Georgia Adventurers Group.

We will meet the GAG (Georgia Adventure Group) members at the Hippie Hole Parking Lot.


There is no address for the parking lot.
Here are the coordinates: 34.3920278,-85.6209943

Parking is limited at the Hippie Hole. If you wish to carpool from the Birmingham area, you could carpool from the Cracker Barrel, 4710 Norrell Dr. in Trussville, 35173. You can use the comments section below to arrange carpools. The drive from Cracker Barrel in Trussville to the Hippie Hole parking lot takes about 1 and 1/2 hours. Ken and Roe will meet everyone at the Hippie Hole parking lot at 9:30 AM. From there it is about 1/4 mile walk on rocky terrain to the water. How long you stay at the swimming hole is up to you. We will be there about 3 hours or so. Save some energy for the steep walk back up after swimming!

Bring your swimsuit, sunscreen, snack (or lunch), water, shoes to walk to the swimming hole, water shoes if you want, towel, and a change of clothes. Bring a trash bag to pack out any trash we may see or have.


Some people bring something to float on as the water is very deep in the middle. You can bring a noodle, float or even a life jacket.

Watch the locals before jumping in or swimming. High water levels are very dangerous here. If it rains very much before the trip and the water level is very high, we won’t be able to swim there.

There is no restroom at the Hippie Hole, but there are 2 privies in the Little River Canyon Falls parking lot, which is not too far up the road.


We will check out Little River Falls after swimming. We may also check out a place across the road known as Blue Hole; no jumping from cliffs here, but in the past there was a rope swing!

If you need any more information you can email kennethhyche@yahoo.com or call 205-540-3930
