2018 Hiker Series: First Day Hike First Day Hike-Hike Along the DeSoto Scout Trail New Year's Day 2018: DeSoto State Park Start the New Year with a first day hike in DeSoto State Park. Join the DeSoto State Park, Little River Canyon Preserve (National Park Service), and JSU Field Schools staff on a beautiful outdoor adventure/hike along the West Fork of Little River on the rugged DeSoto Scout Trail. See historic Civilian Conservation Corps-built structures, waterfalls, and wonderful views of Little River. This hike will be roughly 2 miles total (moderately strenuous terrain). Meet at the DeSoto State Park Country Store for pre-hike orientation. First Day Hikes are staff-led hikes, held annually on New Year’s Day thru-out the Country, and are designed to encourage visitors to enjoy parks year round and to promote good health and exercise by working off those calories gained during the holidays.
