Indian Falls Hike

The Indian Falls hiking trail in DeSoto State Park is short and well worth the hike. There are multiple ways to get to the base of Indian Falls and a short hike past Indian Falls takes you to a beautiful view of Little River.

To hike to Indian Falls, park in the 2nd trailhead parking area past the Country Store. This is the same parking area for The Boardwalk hike.

You’ll cross the road at the Pedestrian Crossing sign and follow the Indian Falls signs to get to the hiking path.

After making the turn around the corner of the fence, the path will end at a T in the road. You can go left or right from here and follow a path to the base of Indian Falls.

Take a moment to enjoy the sights and sounds of Indian Falls.

After enjoying Indian Falls, from the T in the path at the top of the falls, cross the bridge and follow the orange trail markers a short way down the hill to Little River. It’s a short hike and worthwhile. Once you make it to Little River, explore a few side paths and enjoy the view.

Hi, thanks for stopping by!

We happened upon this best-kept secret in North Alabama in 2017 when looking for a place to spend quality time with family.  The serene beauty of Mentone, AL along with its close proximity to Chattanooga, Huntsville, Birmingham, and Atlanta drew us in. 


Our family has spent as much time as possible on Little River by Desoto Falls ever since.  It has become a place of refuge and rest for our family and we have been blessed to have the opportunity to make countless memories in this extraordinary area of the state. 

We hope you and your family and friends will make as many wonderful memories here as we have.
