(Note my earlier review is actually for Desoto Falls in Alabama -- trying to delete). This is a lovely drive through the twist and turns scenic highway. The hikes to both falls were easy and moderate. We enjoyed a picnic afterwards in pleasant surroundings with clean compost toilets nearby.

My husband and I did this hike, there are two separate falls to hike to. Both are easy hikes and the falls are nice to see.

This is a relatively easy hike to see two waterfalls with children and dogs. To go to the upper falls, it is 3/4 of a mile for a total 1.5 mile round trip. At the upper falls there are benches to sit and enjoy the view. Almost at the beginning of the trail is a fork in the other direction,... More

The walk to the upper falls is easier and maybe more rewarding. It's a wide path, and a show gradual slope, very enjoyable! Neither waterfall has rushing water, even after rain.

We went on several hikes the day we visited DeSoto, but it was the best. Many are now paved, and almost like visiting an amusement park. DeSoto was a relaxing walk in the natural woods, with beautiful falls at the end of the trail. Highly recommended.

Great hike to take the grandkids and enjoy the natural beauty of Desoto Falls. We stopped by in August and it was a hot day, remember to bring some water with you and enjoy the trails.

The Upper Falls trail is one and a half miles out and then back. The last section of the trail has been undergoing some trail maintenance, could be slippery if wet as it gets muddy. The very last section before the observation deck has trail closed signs, but the trail is navigable to the observation deck. You can see a... More

We took our Parents on this short trail to the Falls and they Loved it! It was such a nice walk even for those in their 70's and 80's. We'all are planning to do it again, but next time with Cameras and lunch!

The lower falls are smaller and have a shorter but much steeper trail to get to them. The upper falls are very beautiful with a longer but much flatter trail.
