Easy find, easy parking, and 2 views, lower Falls 1/4 mile one way and upper Falls 3/4 one way. Pretty easy trails and beautiful multi-layered waterfall! Sign says dangerous slippery spots, but went after heavy rains and seemed rather easy to navigate.

Desoto Falls is a well marked, scenic hike. It's family friendly with plenty of trails. The falls are truly beautiful and well worth the hike.

Two different falls to choose from both very nice but there are better ones in the area. I like the falls on the shorter trail better. It is short but a rougher trail

Isn't that the sign you always want to see when you go hiking?! Those darn bears. We did not see any, but the upper and lower falls were a sight to see. Worth the hikes. Not sure where the Middle Falls were, we didn't see...More

You don’t even have to leave the campground to find the best swimming areas. Trails were clear and easy to hike. We did run across a rattlesnake on the trail. No swimming really at the fall but it’s still pretty to see. The park is...More

Yes, it's a great trail for dogs. I take both of mine every time I go. The lower fall has part of the trail that narrows in parts but it's fine. Walking to the upper fall the trail is 5 to 6 feet wide all the time.
