Little River which flows into Lake Weiss winds through one of the deepest gorges east of the Mississippi River. The canyon plunges 700' down at its deepest drop and is more than 18 miles long. The Little River Canyon National Preserve was recently created by the U.S. Department of Interior, to preserve this beautiful landscape.

Little River flows across Lookout Mountain and Cherokee and DeKalb counties in Alabama. It is a popular river for canoeing and kayaking and many real estate developments have sprung up along the Little River.
