The two RV Gypsies
hiked at DeSoto Falls
in the Blue Ridge Mountains
April 30, 2010
Four spectacular waterfalls found off the Richard Russell Scenic Highway in the Blue Ridge Mountains of north Georgia
1. the Blue Hole Falls at High Shoals Creek (previous page)
2. High Shoals Creek Falls (previous page)
3. Dukes Creek Falls
4. DeSoto Falls (this page)
The Waterfalls got their name from a legend that tells of the finding of a piece of armor near the falls. It is believed that the armor belonged to DeSoto or one of his fellow explorers.

Views along the trail leading to the upper falls - about a mile and a half, round trip. The easiest hiking trail ever experienced by the two RV Gypsies.

The upper falls (shown below) are the actual DeSoto Falls . The ascent is easy, rolling up and down, broken by long flat stretches in deep wood groves. Occasionally the visible creek makes a soothing gurgle and the falls themselves are worth the trip. Just before you reach these falls you cross a bridge, then turn into the side cove containing the falls. A brief ascent takes you to the observation deck.
