Unlike many of the beautiful fall in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park that can be a long difficult hike to reach, Juney Whank Falls trail is a very easy short walk. It is the best falls to visit for families that have smaller children that aren't up to steep climbs and long hikes. It is a small falls but... More

If you are up for a hike this will be a nice little falls to see. It was the shortest of the 3 falls in the area for distance approx .5 mile from the parking lot. The right trail is a little step so you may want to go the left side trail to get to it unless you like... More

Not overly impressive for novice walkers for us but still in the grand scheme of things, what's not to like in the Smokey Mountains?

Visited in fall of 2013 and the falls are peaceful and pretty. It was a relaxing hike up the trail and made for great photos.

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

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
