Jackson Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Jackson Falls is a scenic jewel of the Natchez Trace Parkway, the parkway linking Nashville to Natchez, Mississippi. The falls is formed when Jackson Branch reaches a bluff above the Duck River, then tumbles off the bluff in two distinct stages. Although Jackson Branch is a low-volume stream, the watercourse still puts on a show and is one of the most southwesterly waterfalls in the state of Tennessee.

The hike starts at a pullout perched on a high bluff above the Duck River. The parking area has restrooms, picnic tables, and interpretive information. After descending into a hollow created by Jackson Branch, you will come to Jackson Falls. The water-course creates a cataract when it drops off the bluff above the Duck River. Here, you are stationed at the base of the lower tier of the two-stage fall, which spills in curtain-like fashion. Above, Jackson Falls makes its turn backed by a sheer rock bluff. The upper tier of the fall is an angled slide. If you are lucky enough to catch this after a high water event, you will be well rewarded."
