About
The beautiful Jackson Falls located between Carter Notch Road and Black Mountain Road was designated "Wild & Scenic" in 1978. The Jackson Community has always considered the Falls a special place and the people are dedicated to keeping it "Wild & Scenic". In honoring the falls area there is a move to assure the landscaping will continue to flourish and grow. We want to being the following information to the forefront of all: The parking is very limited and now timed to a 2 hour visit. There is extended parking in the Village below and visitors can walk to the falls area. Through out our State there is a "Carry out what is Carried In" requirement. Please respect our efforts to keeping our beloved natural areas trash free. There is a public restroom at the top of the falls area. Together we can help keep Natures best flowing!

We’ve been coming to the White Mountains almost every year and only this year discovered this hidden gem! These falls are amazingly beautiful and scenic. Perfect place to cool off in the summer and have some fun exploring! Kids will love swimming and sliding here. Be careful as the rocks are slippery so take care not to fall and hit your head. Smaller children will need constant supervision here for safety. There is limited parking. We are excited to come back and see the falls in the winter too!

Overall we thought the falls were okay. Maybe we were not as impressed with the falls as other people seem to be in these reviews because we haven't gotten a lot of rain lately and maybe they aren't as impressive as they usually are in the spring. We also just came from Glenn Ellis Falls and we thought the bottom of those falls was really impressive. The falls are definitely worth a stop if you are in the area, but I personally would not make this my only destination.

The Jackson Falls are beautiful. When we went it was hot so they were crowded and people were swimming in the river. Parking is difficult around here so I would go early or later in the day. Be careful climbing in the rocks if you choose to.

The Falls themselves are really pretty and great to visit however as others have commented the parking is woefully limited.
Recently the Wentworth inn have commandered the parking area by the lower part of the falls reducing the parking options considerably, and resulting in a lot of people not being able to visit the falls. This is especially true for people with mobility issues. Very sad.

I have been visiting Jackson my entire life, and never miss visiting and sometimes swimming in the Wildcat River at Jackson Falls. Many small pools to soak in, tuck under the falls if you are a kid, or float on a tube. Eat lunch, sit and listen to the river and relax. It is a special spot, no matter what season.

We waited in line for 30 minutes before giving up on parking for Diana’s falls in North Conway. We found Jackson Falls and couldn’t have been happier. Beautiful and refreshing both fit the body and soul. Nature at its best.

Such a beautiful and peaceful waterfall. I traveled with my 79 year old mom so we parked downtown to see the bottom of the falls and to read the signs. Then drove up the hill and parked to see the upper part of the falls and to walk around.

Discovered this place only last year after visiting North Conway for the last seven or eight years. Probably about 10-15 minutes from North Conway. It has become one of my favorite spots to unwind and reflect.

Not touristy at all like other picturesque spots in the area. But did seem to notice a bit more people than on previous visits. Still, with the babbling of the water, it is almost impossible to hear other conversations. As noted, parking is limited and the rocks can be very slippery. But this is nature after all. Great place with great views.

If you're looking to soak up the sun in Jackson this is the place. It's not good for swimming but good enough for kids to play in. Just be careful as the rocks are slippery and could hurt yourself easily. There was approximately 15 car spaces available near the falls. I'd suggest to go very early as the parking fills up quickly. People were following social distancing.
