One thing to remember when doing the lower Jenny Jump Trail itself is that there are still white blazes on many trees alongside the true Jenny blazes which are blue. My sense (and someone please correct me if I'm wrong here) is that the old white blazes were posted as the trail was being incrementally extended way back when. So don't be confused if you see both blaze colors together. Or just white by itself. Basically, you're following the blue.
Only towards the very end of the trail did it get truly muddy, wet, s-l-o-p-p-y & overgrown and not my hiking cup o'tea. But we slogged through determined to reach what is considered (for now anyway) the end of this extension.
We had similar color confusion on the Highland Trail section of Mahlon Dickerson. DH and I got "off trail" for about 1/2 mile following what we thought were the teal Highland Trail blazes. Eventually something told me that these weren't the real HT blazes because although similar in color they were just straight hash marks as opposed to typical HT fat diamonds. Sure enough...wrong direction. Doubled back to where we finally picked up proper HT blazes. So big deal...we added on an extra mile. Who's counting? Just meant more pizza at trails' end. :)
What? You didn't know the International Hiker's Equation?
"Number of Miles Accrued and/or Degree Of Trail Difficulty = Amount Of Pizza and/or Ice Cream Consumed Post Hike"

One of the many blowdowns still on Jenny. This one was more a resting spot than a trail impediment.
Love those hidden waterfalls! This about 2/3 through Jenny Jump.
My pic size started fluctuating while posting this. Good thing I can't say the same for our enthusiasm and enjoyment of these hikes.
