DeSoto Falls
   Lumpkin County, Georgia, United States

This waterfall has been confirmed by the World Waterfall Database, has been mapped and its height has been approximated but exact measurements have not yet been confirmed.
Though their names may suggest otherwise, Lower DeSoto, DeSoto, and Upper DeSoto Falls aren't on the same stream but rather neighboring tributaries dropping into the valley. The middle of the three is often erroneously referred to as Upper DeSoto Falls, but it's on the second tributary dropping into the valley. The trail to the real upper falls is no longer maintained. This unorthodox naming convention has led to some sources erroneously suggesting that DeSoto Falls is collectively a nearly 500-foot tall series of falls - but given that there are three entirely isolated waterfalls, this is not an accurate portrayal of the various falls.
