Have visited this waterfall a few times at different seasons. This waterfall is easy to get to, a fairly easy hike. The waterfall is pretty but nothing special. The hike is very pretty especially during the fall. It's work the time if you never been.

This is a very short hike we took when we had small kids. .7 miles & you see a nice little waterfall. It's accessed in the same parking lot as the Deep Creek Loop trail. By Bryson City, NC. If you're coming from Gatlinburg, I'd wait & come here when you can stay closer. Cherokee or Bryson City.

Juney whank falls is on the same trail as Toms Branch Falls and Indian Creek Falls, all three can be seen within a less than 2 mile hike. Juney Whank is the only one with a bridge that crosses the river right at the falls. It even has a built-in seat, so you can sit and enjoy the falls close... More

Again, the NPS classifies this as easy. To me, easy means anyone can do it, even senior citizens. Well even though we were amateur hikers and did not have a problem, there is NO WAY a senior citizen could do this without help. It is short but is steep incline all the way. The trail is not paved and is... More

Not to far from parking lot... A good family hike to a good sized water fall. Nice bench for viewing. Summer time provides for nice flowers.

Juney Whank Falls near Bryson City in God's great Smoky Mountains is absolutely beautiful. A short easy hike takes you through a visually stunning forest teeming with wildlife and seeing the falls themselves leaves you feeling incredible.

We visited Juney Whank Falls on our trip to Deep Creek to hike to other falls. This is the smallest of the three in the area and is nice because you can get very close, on the footbridge, and even sit a spell on the bench. You need to enjoy climbing as the trail is quite steep from either direction... More
