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

These falls require little effort to reach as they are so close to the centre of Jackson and you can park next to them. Plenty of places you can get really close to the water to enable you to take really close up pictures. I got some great shots there. Plus higher up locations to look down n the water

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.
