First time in Alabama and the falls were flowing vigorously. Enjoyable to see from several vantage points but we did not make the trip to the bottom. Worthwhile visit!

The Falls were a blast for our three kids. They all chased tadpoles in the shallow pools up top. Beautiful place to take photos, but you must respect the danger in being around such a cliff.

We visited after several days of heavy rain and the falls were roaring. My wife would not get near them because the roaring scared her. But the extra volume of water made for beatriful falls. At this level, the falls could be very dangerous.

I took a day trip to the falls while on vacation in Lookout Mountain. Very easy, short walk. They were beautiful! The bluff around the falls was gorgeous. Mother Nature at her finest!

Was on Lookout Mountain for the day and visited Desoto Falls. It was a very short walk from the parking lot to the breath taking beauty of the falls. The area was well maintained and clean. Great stop off if you are in the area.

We saw many people with pets. I believe if pets are on a leash, there is no problem. I didn't see anywhere that said no pets were allowed. Hope this helps.
