Waterfall Hike at DeSoto State Park

     
Join DeSoto State Park Staff for a fun day of hiking thought-out the park to see some of DeSoto’s waterfalls, big & small. See Lost Falls, Laurel Falls, Indian Falls, Lodge Falls, even more water features like Laurel Creek & the West Fork of Little River. Come on out and burn those calories while enjoying the Great Outdoors!
 
   
The trail would be moderate, rugged terrain over 5 to 6 miles.
An optional side-trip to take at the end of the hike would be to drive to DeSoto Falls, an 104 foot waterfall located 6 miles away from DSP’s Country Store.
