Nice view of the falls from a small bridge which goes over the creek. The walk is slightly strenuous as there is a small incline as you ascend and a slightly steeper incline as you descend. Worth the walk. (There are two other falls in the immediate area.) Parking is nice and the trail is marked well.

on our way UP, we came upon a young deer only about 3 ft from us. It let us take several photos while it's mom watched from a distance. They have built a bridge that crosses right in front of the falls.

First, let me tell you I am in my mid 40s and tubby...well, fat actually. I am actually fairly active, but since I live in Florida I'm not much for vertical climbing. We went very early in the morning on a Friday in July. I'll clarify that it was probably a little after 8am. My husband and I had walking... More

I always enjoy the quality of the parks in the National Park System as they are well kept and safer than many hiking trails. Juney Whank Falls is worth the trip as long as you are not expecting a wide waterfall with lots of water. The trail to Juney Whank is pretty steep so my recommendation is that if you... More

This wasn't our favorite of the 3 falls but, enjoyed the hike to get to it. It is smaller then I expected it to be.

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.
