These are a group of gentle falls right off the road in Jackson. It's perfect for kids to splash and explore. The rocks are a little slippery, use caution. The water is a little on the cold side but perfect for a hot summer day. There are several deeper pools where you can get completely underwater to cool off! Keep... More

Spent a few hours enjoying this natural wonder with the kids (7 & 8). Long stretch of waterfalls/pools to keep the kids busy. Plenty of spots to set up chairs and a few picnic tables as well. Slippery rocks can be a bit treacherous for kids and adults alike but definitely a great way spend a few hours with a... More

Nice series of falls right off the road. Not too many parking spaces, but, enough for everyone on a busy July day. Lots of flat rocks to sit on and several small pools to dunk in. Very clean. No trash was seen in the area when we were there. The rocks can be very slippery. We saw several people fall.... More

We went to the falls after reading the reviews and I am glad we did. I took some awesome pictures. It is so much prettier than lower falls along the Lower falls on the big highway. It was so peaceful when we went. The weather was chilly for July (70 degrees) so we did not go into the icy water... More

Lovely series of waterfalls, right by the side of the road. Many flat rocks for "posing" Some people were swimming, but it seemed rather cold to us.

The sounds of the water rushing down hill along with a wonderfully scenic and peaceful atmosphere make this a wonderful spot to escape the crowds and heat -- GREAT place for a picninc.

Just the wonderful sound of the falls and river are enough to calm any soul, and it's right in the middle of town!

Amazing spot with wonderful views and so peaceful. It wasn't overly crowded and we had plenty of room to breathe. Visited mid-week and decided on the next trip we'd pack a lunch and make an afternoon out of it. Water is chilly, but refreshing. Bring some water shoes and a towel. Nice flat rocks to sit on or walk over.... More
