From the decision point you can choose one of two moderate hikes. You can turn left to the shorter 1/4 mile hike to the Lower DeSoto Falls or turn right to the longer 3/4 mile hike to the Upper DeSoto Falls. The Lower Falls hike...More

Desoto Falls is a very nice waterfall hike, with lower falls about 1/4 mile out and the upper falls about 3/4 mile out. It is a moderate hike, with a little elevation, but the falls are beautiful and well worth the relatively minimal effort.

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.
