We walked to Juney Whank, Indian and Toms Branch falls. The hike to Juney Whank is short but steep. The trail to the others is very wide, crushed gravel for much of the way. All three falls are beautiful but fairly small. We went early...More

We did the 3 falls hike (Juney Whank, Toms Branch, & Indian). They are all easy to get to. Started with JW which is a short hike with a little bit of a climb. Falls sits above a neat little bridge. Parking can be tight.

I am 66 years old. The steep climb to Juney Whank Falls was well worth the uphill hike. I decided not to do the loop so returned to the 3 waterfalls parking area and headed to Tom Branch Falls on the bike/hiking trail. It is...More

Steep hike both ways but the falls are beautiful. Once you get your fill of the view of the falls from the bridge, wander up the trail and walk to where the falls start. A nice second view.

Easy to see all three waterfalls - just 2.2 miles for all of it and all are very pretty. Very easy hike, only an incline for a short bit- 7yr completed with no fuss. Thought the furthest one- Indian Creek was the prettiest and there...More

The most difficult waterfall to access of the three from the parking lot. As a casual hiker, it requires moderate effort to reach the fall, but it is worth the trip.

Easy small hike, walked to all three falls, casual stroll in less than hour. Nice falls, nice walk, nice time. Would recommend. Oh and a man on horse passed me, that's a first for me!

Be sure to do the Juney whank loop short hike and can see 3 waterfalls. Juney whank, tom branch, and Indian creek. All a little different but all beautiful. Wide trail basically flat after Juney whank!
