Early Spring Hike
Early Spring Hike in DeSoto State Park One of the most beautiful times of the year at DeSoto State Park! Join DSP Staff on a moderate meandering hike along the Little River trail to see what species of plants is starting to grow and bloom after a long winter season. We will learn some natural history of the plants, and some medicinal and historical uses as well. Wonderful views of the West Fork of Little River, Indian Falls, and Lodge Falls along the route. Will stop and eat at the Mountain Inn Restaurant in the park to eat lunch (outside seating, bring your own or order), then head back towards the Country Store. Approx. 2 miles round trip, moderate along rocky terrain.: 10:00 a.m.: DeSoto State Park, Fort Payne, Alabama. Meet at the Benefield Interpretive Center (Next to DeSoto’s Country Store): Free and open to everyone. Free, pre-registration is required so to know how many to expect. Hike is open to ages 8 to adult. We will be social distancing on the trail as much as possible. Email Brittney.Hughes@dcnr.alabama.gov for more info or to pre-register.
