“REWARDING BUT A LITTLE TRICKY TO FIND”
Review of Juney Whank Falls

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 trail description of where to go. Well, we got lost and had it not been for a ranger we ran into, we'd still be walking. All three falls are very nice and are high on my effort vs. reward scale. The trails are not particularly difficult or long (if you don't get lost), and the beauty of the falls is wonderful.

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 are ever in either area these falls are a must see.

Mingo Falls in Cherokee, then Juney whank, Tom Branch & Indian Creek Falls in Bryson City, NC

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 the bathrooms were very clean!

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.

easy walking trails. Not an outstanding waterfall but pretty setting. Good walk for grandparents or small children
