About 1.2 miles to the falls on a paved trail. Can get crowed, take some water on the hot days. A bit uphill but not too bad, we took a 4 yr old and he walked the whole way. Kids can play in the water coming off the falls at the bridge.

Park in the deep creek parking lot. It is a short hike to the falls. I was expecting it to be crowded but there were only a few others there. Nice benches on bridge over the waterfall, a great place to sit for a while.

One of the waterfalls in the deep creek trail loop is the Juney Whank falls - it is a cute and a nice little hike with no stress for kids or seniors. Do spend some time walking and sitting by the waterfall to enjoy the glories fo nature.

We ate lunch at River's Edge, then took the hike. It was a Goldilocks hike. Not too long, not too short. Not too flat, not too steep. Just right!

The falls are really nice. There is a bridge that crosses the waterfall that kinda blocks the view some. It would have been better in my mind if they had built the trail to go lower so you could get a better view.

This is a simple 45 min hike that is perfect for beginners, or families with children. We literally fit this hike in between 2 other waterfall hikes we had planned for the day. It's that easy. The trail winds upward to the falls, and all downhill back to the parking area. These falls are small, beautiful. There's a cool bench... More

Felt like it was a continual climb up! But the view at the end was awesome. Worth the hike. We drove over from Gatlinburg TN for this one and a few others.

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.
