I have been here during all of the four seasons. Spring and fall are the best. The place gets very busy during the summer. Great spot for a swim. In the early spring, when all the snow is melting upstream, the water really moves quickly. By summertime, the falls are more of a trickle. The trees changing colors on the... More

Short walk from Jackson. Good views. Very photogenic Look at Youtube video of the Ellis River in flood; it's not normally like that.

Although covered over by ice and snow at this time of year, it was nice to view the falls and enjoy a brisk, challenging hike up one side and down the other. Be careful of vehicles though.

Great place to view some ledges and swimming. The mountain views are gorgeous. Family orientated, good place to enjoy a book, be wary too of your youngsters-sometimes creeps come around too. Just be aware of your surroundings and they go away.

It was very charming, but not spectacular like the Crawford Notch and the other mountain areas. Maybe it was because it was raining, but it is still pretty, and a nice, gentle walk for Jackson.

Jackson Falls is a must-see attraction at all times of year. There are multiple levels and heights of falls right at roadside, and the view to the west is just stunning. In Spring the waters are raging with unbelievable fury and in Winter it's hard to understand how ice can form on such rapidly moving water
