I love to see waterfalls and today was a day full of them. I saw 6 waterfalls today.Cherokee Falls at Cloudland Canyon State Park.
I was camped here for a few nights and had already been to the falls once. I was heading out today, but it was such a beautiful cool morning I decided to go see them again. It is a short hike less than a mile to the falls and about 200 steps down to see them. It does take you breath away, but it is worth it. The falls are amazing! From here you can also hike down 400 more steps to see Hemlock falls, but I recommend going to the Sitton’s trailhead parking area and hiking the couple of miles up along the river to see it. It has to be the one of the best day hikes I have ever done.My main goal today was to see Desoto Falls in Fort Payne, Alabama. The Falls are awesome, but it was a small picnic area where you had to pay a $4. parking fee and there was no trail walk to the falls. They were right there. I was a little disapointed that I was missing out on a hike, but the falls are definitly rewarding even if you didn’t have to hike to them. Since the falls were not actually in Desoto State Park I decided to head over the the park and check out some of the hiking trails so I could be out in nature a little more today.
I was able to get one of the last parking spots at the trailhead and saw on the trail map that there were 3 falls within a short distance of each other. Bingo! All of the falls were small, but I enjoyed the hiking and seeing them.

While I was heading to my next camping spot for the evening I passed Little River Canyon. I wanted to stop here, but saw online that they were closed because of the carona virus so I did not plan to stop here. As I drove by the place was packed with cars so I decided to stop and was rewarded with a view of the falls. Even though I’ve been hiking most of the day I didn’t mind the short walk from the parking area to the falls.
