After the hike in paddlers are rewarded with putting in and getting to paddle around the base of and behind Desoto Falls. Bring a camera, this is a magical and photogenic moment (and a great place to make those pictures/video of flatwater moves look cool).

I think this was the actual first decent:

The other link is from April 2009. Regardless this has been run more than once now
The online gauge for the West Fork of the Little River is about 5 miles downstream at the main Desoto State Park property. Look for anything over 175cfs and the run will be fine, even better ~300cfs.
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.
Use the map below to calculate how
to arrive to the main town from your zipcode.
