The road to these falls (this one , Tom Branch and Indian Creek) was an adventure, as we took the road less travelled. My GPS had us take a 1 lane dirt road over some mountains instead of going through Bryson City, was a nice trip though. As for Juney Whank Falls, stunning waterfall. The steps leading up to it...

Nice hike, about 3/10 of a mile. It was a fun hike and the falls were great to observe and photograph.

Several vantage points for pictures. Hike is a bit more difficult than the other two falls in the same area. The bigger loop is for folks who like hiking... take the shorter loop (0.2 miles) down to the mail trail if you don't like too much up hill climbing/hiking. Very photogenic and serene falls. You may even catch a deer... More

It is a good walk around the loop trail to these falls. Given all the other falls in the area that are much easier to access, if you only are looking to see falls, then don't do these. If you want to take a nice walk and see some falls, this loop is for you. Some good elevation change but... More

Juney Whank Falls is really pretty. It is not a long hike to the falls. I enjoyed it. I totally recommend it.

We visited in May before the crowds had yet to arrive. Even so, there was one knucklehead who waded across the creek and was climbing all over the rocks of the falls. I can imagine it's a beautiful spot but not when someone is using it for his personal playplace. The walk is very short from the parking lot (perhaps... More

It's a short hike up from the parking lot in the Deep Creek area of the GSMNP near Bryson City. In the summer, this waterfall can be pitiful, as summers can be dry around here; but in the winter, it's a wonderful waterfall. The hike is uphill to the waterfall, and downhill to the parking lot.

To get there you need to go to the Deep Creek area go past the camp grounds and you will find the trailhead. It is a short walk to Juney Whank Falls, there is a nice bridge to walk across the falls. There are three falls you can access on this hike.You can continue on the Deep Creek Trail to... More

The walk up to these falls is very easy, only .3 miles. But the bridge across the falls is a bit disappointing because it blocks you from getting really good pics. We continued our trek from here to find Tom Branch and Indian Creek Falls, this proved to be a bit confusing. The parks department needs to add a few... More

Quick walk up to the falls which are the prettiest accessible falls in the park. Did the hike with small kids who did fine getting to and from the falls. There is a real bridge across the stream by the falls to keep kids safe.
