We visited Desoto Falls and hiked part of the Scout trail in the park. The falls was a small amount of water but we did like the view of the canyon. There was some historical information on the dam and its purpose. Originally build by an A.A. Miller. He may be a relation we are not sure yet. He wanted to have an electrical generator to supply power to the area.
The trail is marked as parts are strenuous. I agree the hike was pretty strenuous and was more walking over rocks than trail. We were warned that the trail was not maintained its entire length in the summer. At one point we were having problems identifying where the trail continued but there was a trail leading up the cliff side. When we got to the top, not an easy climb, we found that at that point we were almost off the parks trail map. So we found it was 2 ½ miles.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
