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.

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.

We went to the Deep Creek area to find the three falls. Starting from the parking lot it's tough to tell where to begin. There are a couple of ways to go. We found the first one Juneywhank, but then wanted to also find Tom branch and Indian Creek falls. There are no signs posted, but we did have a... More

We love falls, we visited 3 falls in the Bryson City, NC area & one in Cherokee. All were easy to get to & very picturesque. We were lucky in that many of the kids in the area seemed to still be in school so we were able to enjoy the peacefulness of the sceneries without screaming kids! If you... More

Juney whank falls is a very short hike up a steep hill. If you go a little further you can see Tom branch and Indian creek falls, all are beautiful! Worth the hike for such a short distance . In the summer months you can see people coming down the river on tubes. There is a nice picnic area and... More

Very short steep hike to a wonderful water fall that can be enjoyed from a bridge that crosses over. Reminded me of Laurel Falls with less crowds and a shorter hike.

The location of this trail is a quick ride from Bryson City, NC. The nice thing about this trail is that you are able to see three different waterfalls on one hike. They are the Juney Whank Falls, Deep Creek Falls, and Toms Falls. The hike isn't that bad as the first falls are approximately 0.3 miles from the parking... More
