The falls and the surrounding scenic area were named for Hernando DeSoto, a Spanish explorer who was known to have traveled the wilderness in search of gold. Early settlers found a piece of armor here, and suddenly a mountain legend was born. It was believed that DeSoto and his men left the armor behind as they explored the Southeast for treasure. Unfortunately for DeSoto, he and his followers were searching in the wrong place. In the 1830s, not far from this location, there was a gold rush that is well documented in a museum at the center of town in nearby Dahlonega, Georgia. DeSoto Falls Recreation and Scenic Area consists of both a campground and a well-maintained hiking trail to two waterfalls on Frogtown Creek.
