Alabama is a very geological diverse state. The vast natural resources and biodiversity of Alabama can greatly be attributed to its geological history.

Clarkson Bridge is located in the physiographic region called the Cumberland Plateau, which is at the most southern end of the Appalachian Plateau. The area is characterized by flat-topped high elevation and deep, steep valleys.
Sandstone is very porous and easily penetrated by water. It has been used commonly in construction. Look at the Clarkson Covered bridge pilings and boulders in the parking area for examples. Also note the sandstone exposed to the right of the bridge.

Sedimentary rocks, including shale and sandstone are the most common rock types found in the area which is part of the Pottsville Geological Formation. There are also deposits of coal throughout the region.
