Jackson Falls

(2 reviewss)


Jackson Falls is a lovely waterfall in Jackson, New Hampshire that drops 100 feet. The waterfall consists of cascades and small plunges along with many great swimming holes. Although the waterfall does not have very large drops, it does stretch for several hundred feet of the Wildcat Brook.

Thanks to its swimming pools and ample area for picnics, Jackson Falls attracts hundreds of visitors every day in the summer. The location of the waterfall also adds to its popularity too. The falls are located just a short walk from Main Street. The lower section of the waterfall is often less popular and it can be found right across from The Wentworth Hotel on Carter Notch Road. 

The best time to visit Jackson Falls is the spring when Wildcat Brook is flowing strongest and the summer crowds have not yet arrived. That said, it’s a lovely spot all year-round and a New Hampshire location you’ll not want to miss!
