We stumbled upon this while visiting Muscle Shoals and had a great stroll across the river. The two-level bridge (railroads on top; wagons and pedestrians on the bottom) is an engineering feat that you can study up close. The bottom level has been restored and...More

Relaxing place to sit and talk. Would recommend McFarland park tho as it's is bigger and closer to Florence. Sheffield really doesn't offer much but strangers walking up to you asking for change. Florence had some really nice restaurant's.

I can’t wait to visit the area again so I can come back here! The day we came, it was unbelievably cold and windy...too uncomfortable to stay and explore for long...but I did manage to get some really great photos!

This is lovely. I always enjoyed the walk with my daughters. I'm sure the foliage is changing there now to reveal a beautiful fall.

We took our 2 kids to see the "Railroad tracks to nowhere." They loved it. We were able to teach them the historical aspect of it while having fun. We walked the bridge and the trail. There are lots of photo ops, so we took...More

The railroad bridge was crazy hard to find. None of the maps we tried had it marked correctly. My suggestion is to find Oral and Facial Surgery of the Shoals LLC. That will take you right to it. It's beautiful at sunset. We spent about...More

The parking area is difficult to find. My GPS did not show the access roads properly. There is a parking lot very near the bridge. It is accessed either by cutting through the parking lot serving the condos and medical office nearby, or by following...More
