💦Let's Go Ch8singWaterfalls💦 - Chapter 20
This will be a three for one, that will begin at DeSoto Falls and end at Dick's Creek Falls. About DeSoto Falls: Hike the two mile Desoto Falls Trail near Helen to a pair of waterfalls where, legend holds, a piece of armor was found from DeSoto’s expedition in the mid-1500s.
Two gorgeous waterfalls. A beautiful forest filled with tumbling creeks and gnarly, leathery-leafed rhododendron. And, legend holds, the site where a piece of armor was found, thought to be from the epic expedition of explorer Hernando de Soto in the mid 1500s. DeSoto Falls is well worth the visit.
The two mile out-and-back DeSoto Falls Trail packs a lot of punch in a short distance, crossing a beautiful rhododendron and mossy boulder-filled creek before hiking to two rushing waterfalls through a shady young forest. This hike’s relatively short, kid-friendly distance and moderate elevation change make it one of North Georgia’s most popular waterfall hikes."
DeSoto is a mild to moderate trek which unfolds two majestic beauties.
Afterwards, we will take a 14min drive to Dick's Creek Falls to visit the sweet spot, which is Dick's Creek Falls.
The trek at DeSoto Falls requires boots and hiking sticks or hiking poles.
We will meet at Publix on Pleasant Hill, at 1625 Pleasant Hill Rd #200, Duluth, GA 30096, at 7:00 a.m., with a 7:30 departure.
Stay tuned for additional details, here, and definitely engage in the chatter and follow along in the event thread, in GirlTrek Atlanta.
