As we were staying at The Carter Notch Inn, it was a short walk down to these picturesque falls. There is free parking close by and it is easy to get up close to the rocks. A walk to the falls is a perfect accompaniment to a visit to Jackson. Have a picnic and enjoy nature! Recommended.

Beautiful views and a real tranquil spot, our hotelier advised of a beaver dam just up from the bridge too but we didn't have time to check it out.

The falls are easily found and accessed about 300 yards up a side road from route 16a close to the centre of Jackson village.

Don't just look at the falls from the car park...Fortune favours the brave. The rocks, though a bit slippy, are easy to traverse and an extra 3 or 400 feet can be made down the falls for spectacular views. Just watch your step!

Background for a wedding is so perfect. With the river flowing and the sunlight shinning through was breath taking.

If you are an avid photographer, you cannot miss a visit to Jackson falls. The upper area where there is parking is a beautiful spot to photograph, both upstream & down. To get to the more vigorous falls, park across from the Wentworth Inn. Walk alone upstream & you will eventually see the "Public Way" to the falls. Be careful... More

The falls were just up the road from our hotel but there was parking if required. We went the day after heavy rain and they thundered along. Nice stop if you are in the area.
