desoto falls

DeSoto Falls is one of the tallest and most visited waterfalls in Alabama. Named after the Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto, it stands 107 feet tall and cascades down a layered rock wall into a pool below. You can easily reach the waterfall via a paved path just off Lookout Mountain Parkway, only a few hundred yards from the parking lot. While the upper falls are accessible to people of all abilities, viewing the lower falls requires descending 50 stairs. With a very short hike to a stunning waterfall and more than 30 miles of hiking and biking trails, swimming, and fishing, this park has everything you need for a memorable experience.
