Kinlock Falls is a 40ft rock slide located in the Sipsey Wilderness within Bankhead National Forest. In the summer it's a popular spot for locals, they'll be sliding down on inner tubes or swimming in the pool below.
Hubbard is a tributary of the Sipsey River within the wilderness area. Runnable levels for the falls are approximated based on the Sipsey gage downstream.
Just before the falls the creek constricts, pass through some squirrely water and get ready for the ride.
