Jackson Falls is named after Andrew Jackson who supposedly visited this spot when traveling along the Natchez Trace in the early 1800s. Part of the Jackson Branch, this is an intermittent waterfall that empties into the Duck River.
Not seen in the photo, Jackson Falls starts on the rights side of the image as a long cascading slide. It then turns to flow down this beautifully sculpted rock formation that ends in a clear pool at its base.
Jackson Falls is in the Tennessee portion of the Natchez Trace Parkway at mile marker #404.7. It is a Top 30 Natchez Trace Site.
