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

After parking one is asked to deposit a $3 convenience fee for use of the park and then walking through the camp grounds one comes to the bridge that leads to the falls. One walk is 3/4 miles to one set of falls, which mostly...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

Not the biggest falls but worth the hike if you like a rustic more overgrown trail and falls area. Two falls here went to the upper Falls shown in pictures.

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.
