This loop cobbles a multitude of trails to form a “highlight reel” of Alabama’s DeSoto State Park. First, the Quarry Trail snakes among boulders and other rock formations to reach a Civilian Conservation Corps pit used in developing the park in the 1930s. Join the serpentine Family Bike Loop, then enter the striking Laurel Creek Valley, walking over open stone slabs and beside big boulders framed in mountain laurel, rhododendron, and azaleas. Visit three waterfalls: Lost Falls, Laurel Falls, and Azalea Cascades. Explore an amazing boulder garden, then fi nish the loop.
