Desoto Falls - Mentone Al

A self-supported trip created by Debbieyaks

Trip Overview

Beautiful Paddle. You put in at the Desoto Falls State Park Picnic Area at the boat ramp at the top of the falls. You would think the falls would create a heavy pull but it was very easy to paddle upstream. You go about 1 hour upriver (not very difficult) to a man made dam. We were thinking about porting around but there were no trespassing signs at a camp so this is your turn around spot. Total round trip was 4.7 miles and about 2 hours.


Was a little chilly but clear water, very few obstacles
