Description

Jackson Falls is one of the premier technical climbing destinations in Illinois, but even if you don't like hanging off the side of giant rocks, you'll definitely appreciate looking at them from below and camping among them. There are ample hiking opportunities created by all the topography in the area, so this is a great place if you're trying to get on up like James Brown.
