Southeastern Outings Dayhike in DeSoto State Park

Southeastern Outings Dayhike in DeSoto State Park

at Unknown

We will hike along the beautiful West Fork of Little River.  We’ll also hike various other trails in the park and visit Lost Falls.  We usually see a total of 9 waterfalls on this outing. This is one of the most scenic state parks in Alabama.  Well-behaved, carefully supervised children age 9 and over able to walk about 5 miles without complaining welcome.
