The Lookout Mountain Parkway Scenic Byway is a delightful drive year round, but especially beautiful during the fall, color season. CR 89/SR 176/SR 117, from Gadsden, AL to the Georgia border, takes you through heavily wooded farmland and quaint towns and villages. Also, witness breathtaking views of canyons, scenic vistas through the parks and preserves at the north end of the route.
