John's Jump Falls and DEW Falls Reviews

The falls are on opposite sides of the road. There is a parking lot on the east side of Whitewater Rd just north of Whitewater Church Rd. There are two paths, take the left one (northernmost). After a short hike you will come to John’s Jump Falls. About a quarter mile north on Whitewater Rd there is a driveway on the west side of the road with a metal gate. Go past the gate about a quarter mile you will see a large tree that looks like a “Y” on the left, take the trail to the left. DEW falls is just up ahead.
