Jackson Falls is one of the most visited climbing destinations in the Midwest. Due to the amount of high cliffs and bluffs within the canyon area, rock climbing activities are very popular.
The main waterfall located near the main parking lot is the best fall to see in this area but there are several other fairly nice sized waterfalls throughout the canyon as well. To reach the bottom of the falls, climb down what is known as the “Dog Walk” - a cluster of rocks allowing people to climb down safety (and slowly) into the canyon. When wet, this area can post significant slip, trip and fall hazards and cell phone coverage as well as emergency rescue reach is very spotty.
