River Jack Waterfall

Located off Perdu Temps Trail, River Jack Waterfall is one of the, if not the largest waterfall on Dominica. Being in the same area as many other waterfalls, it is a good side trip for any hiking trip in the Southeast part of the island.

This is a tall waterfall located in some off the toughest terrain on the island, and is a sight to be seen from a distance. However, it is an amazing sight to see the water drop from the cliff past countless layers of canopies growing up the cliff until finally disappearing into the final blanket of tree tops.


River Jack Waterfall is located on the southern part of the island of Dominica, 0.7 miles west of Delices; it is 7.4 miles to the east of Roseau.

This is not an easy hike, as this southeast part of the island has some of the toughest terrain anywhere on the island. Frequent drops and inclines make this an intense hike. Luckily, the waterfall is not located too deeply into the forest, and is nearby other waterfalls, being nearly directly southwest of Victoria Falls. Locals in Delices should be able to give you a good idea where the waterfall is.
