In the parking lot next to the restrooms and picnic area, you can hike north 1/4 mile to a viewpoint 300 feet above the Duck River, and another 1/2 mile to Baker Bluff Overlook.
A steep trail (concrete sidewalk) leads to a clear pool at the bottom of these falls. In a matter of minutes, you will be at Jackson Falls, a beautifully sculptured cascade.

Historic Site and Old Trace
The old Natchez Trace passed through Metal Ford at milepost 382.8, where travelers could cross the Buffalo River except in heavy rains. The ford gets its name from its stone bottom, which reminded these early travelers of their stone-surfaced or "metalized" roads back home.
The location also offers a short, 5 to 10 minute trail that takes you to Steele's Iron Works, where primitive pig iron was produced in 1820, to be found in the old millrace.
Fall Hollow Waterfall
short walk to overlook, followed by steep trail to base of the falls.

As soon as you arrive, you can hear the water descending over the twenty-foot drop.
The 20-foot waterfall can be viewed from a viewing platform at the end of the short trail. After this point, the path becomes steep and rocky. Proceed with caution, as the sign says.
Amber Falls Winery is owned and operated by Tim and Judy who bought the Lewis County property in 2003 with the intention of building and opening a Christian retreat center. In the end, the retreat center didn't materialize, but a beautiful vineyard and winery did. 2005 was the year when the first vines were planted, Chardonnay and Seyval Blanc. As the vineyard expanded over the next three years, several thousand more vines were planted.
In March 2008, the winery's tasting room opened, and since then, Amber Falls Winery & Cellars has drawn visitors from all over and is a favorite with wine lovers and travelers alike.
