Additional Information: Putting together this whole section of Jenny Creek was and still is a bit confusing so I will piece it together as best as possible. When I checked this location out back in 2010, I had only 2 locations with the coordinates for. And those I had gotten from the World Waterfall database. Since then I have gain more knowledge along with better technology. I recently found that the American Whitewater has a page on this section of Jenny Creek. By matching my photos up with theirs along with similar descriptions, I have been able to make some corrections. The whitewater route starts at Powell Road, south of Hwy 3. When I was there you could not drive on Jayville road all the way, as you come to where the bridge is out. So I did not check out their first 1.3 miles of the route.
