Be warned- the restrooms at this site where probably infected with E-coli.... toilets were overflowed with visible sewage, all over floor, both men and women's restrooms. I would rate the Falls higher if not for that. Falls were very pretty, short but steep climb back...More

I stopped here at the falls while driving the Natchez Trace Parkway. It’s an easy 5 to 10 minute walk down to the falls. The water was running pretty good even though it was January. I would say this is a must stop.

Love the waterfall, and the surrounding sites. Be sure to dress with appropriate shoes, as if it's rained recently, it will be muddy.

The walk is steep, but the falls are nice! You can actually feel the temperature drop as you descend toward the falls. Great place to visit on a hot summer day.

Nice little waterfall. Great way to spend a couple of hours on a hot day. Short walk down a paved path, with steps

Local friends brought us to this place recently. It was a wonderful afternoon visit hiking down to the falls (we appreciated the steps on part of the trail), enjoying the cool, serene beauty of the falls, wading in the chilly creek pool beneath the falls,...More

A short (and for some, strenuous) hike down to Jackson Falls is accessible from a pullout off the Natchez Trace, and well worth the hike. The falls are actually a cascade into a flat pool then a tumbling falls to the creek below, perhaps 60...More

This waterfall is right off the Natchez Trace Parkway. It's only a 900 foot trail down to the falls. It's also on a concrete path with metal handrails. It is a little steep, but because of the path and rails, anyone can go down to...More

The incline is concrete so there's not a footing type issue. Personally, I probably wouldn't take my 2 year old granddaughter to the falls yet. We live about 5 miles from there.
