DeSoto Falls on Little River is one of the tallest and most visited waterfalls in Alabama. Named for Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto, the 107 foot waterfall is part of DeSoto State Park on Lookout Mountain. Located just off the Lookout Mountain Parkway, the waterfall is reached via a paved pathway that leads a few hundred yards from the parking lot down to the railed overlook. The historic A. A. Miller Dam & the upper falls can be seen by visitors of all abilities, but the lower or main waterfall requires a walk down concrete stairs to the overlook.
