Long Description:
The ford is at Glen St Falls Road and the parking lot of Jackson Falls. You almost need a high clearance vehicle to cross this ford, not because of the water but because of the rocks in the creek. If you follow the creek it eventually flows over a large bluff.

This is a spectacular area to visit. The bluffs and rock faces found at Jackson Falls offer excellent technical climbing surrounded by a beautifully scenic area of the Shawnee National Forest. Considered part of the general forest area the Jackson Falls has a vault toilet. Camping is free, but limited to a maximum of 14-days continuous stay.

From the trailhead a short trail leads to the top of Jackson Falls. High bluffs are in the area, visitors should be cautious and aware of their surroundings.
