Waterloo, Alabama, is nestled along the banks of the Tennessee River on the north shore of Pickwick Lake. Steeped in Native American history, the town is a stop on the North Alabama Birding Trail and renowned for the nearby bald eagle population. Annually, the Trail of Tears Commemorative Motorcycle Ride ends in Waterloo marked by an outdoor festival with live music and pow wow.
