Aerial of Desoto Falls - Little River Canyon - Mentone Alabama
The Falls was filmed using my DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter with a GoPro Hero4 Camera.
Desoto Falls just outside Mentone, Alabama on the West Fork of Little River falls off exactly 104 feet to form a beautiful cascading waterfalls. The water that flows from the falls is one of the primary tributaries of the Little River, one of the few rivers in all of North America that flows almost entirely on the top of a mountain.
Over the past thousand or so years this beautiful river has carved several unbelievably magnificent canyons into the surface of Lookout Mountain.
Sitting above the falls is A. A. Miller Dam constructed in 1925 to provide hydro electric power to the surrounding area. When first constructed the original dam was only ten feet high, but locals help raise money to add another ten feet to the dam in order to create a larger lake for recreational purposes.
At its peak, Miller’s Dam, also known as DeSoto Falls Dam, generated enough power to supply Mentone, Valley Head, Fort Payne, Collinsville and Menlo, Georgia.
Miller eventually accumulated around 300 acres of land surrounding DeSoto Falls with the intent to develop the breathtaking area, but the Great Depression brought those intentions to a halt.
The concrete pad that supported the generator and the feed pipe are all that remain of North Alabama’s first hydroelectric power plant.
DeSoto Falls is one of the primary features of DeSoto State Park. The park is a beautiful recreation area that was made possible by the hard work of the Civilian Conservation Corps or the CCC. The main area of the park is located a short drive south of the waterfalls and offers plenty of amenities.
The park offers nine trails; some of those are biker friendly. It also offers cabins and chalets, a motel, restaurant, store and picnic area. It is also a resort park, with plenty of campsites to choose from.
DeSoto Falls is open daily during daylight hours. One of its features includes a beautiful lake that begs to be swam in.
The falls are located just off Lookout Mountain Parkway on the western edge of the town of Mentone. The route to the waterfalls is well marked by signs in both Mentone and along the roadside of Alabama Highway 35 as it leads south from Interstate 59 at Fort Payne.
Desoto Falls in Fort Panye Alabama
While going to see Desoto Falls in Fort Payne Alabama. We found this eleven mile scenic drive, on the western side of the Little River Canyon, while visiting Fort Payne Alabama. This scenic drive is on top of Lookout Mountain on AL Highway 176 off of AL Highway 35 in Fort Payne Alabama. It has Water Falls and Overlooks all along this drive. It is also known as Little River Canyon. There was also 3 car clubs that happen to be on the drive at the same time we were with some very nice old cars. We only had 1 day to spend here, we will go back, so much more to see.

Fall in Mentone | A Place To Dream | Life In Bama
A visit to scenic Mentone in the Fall is a wonderful retreat to dream. On this Life In Bama I will tell you about our visit to this area. The year we went to the Mentone and Fort Payne area there was a severe drought in our state. Many of the beautiful waterfalls that the area is known for were dry. But that did not deter us from enjoying the beautiful scenery of Mentone, Desoto State Park and Desoto National Park Preserve.
We had a great time walking on the road beside our quaint cabin atop Lookout Mountain. I hope you enjoy this video, subscribe if you do. Thanks for watching!
