  • From the Deep Creek parking lot, you can hike to 3 distinct waterfalls. Juney Whank Falls are two-tenths of a mile away - - all uphill - - So know your own individual limits before your start. There's...  more »
  • We hiked to this fall and the other two at Deep Creek. The whole place is very worth a visit and the trails are marked well. This fall was beautiful but the trail to it was a little steep.  more »
  • One of the smaller waterfalls in the area. We had limited time so we took the short walk. Don't expect anything spectacular, but it's worth the short walk to get out of the car and get some gentle exe...  more »

  • The best of the three Deep Creek waterfalls. It's worth the hike.
  • Located less than a half-mile outside of Deep Creek Campground lies Juney Whank Falls. This is a set of two waterfalls, really: an upper and lower section. Water plunges about ninety feet from the side of the mountain, then continues its trip down to Deep Creek. The falls are likely named for Junaluska Whank, who is thought to be buried somewhere in the Deep Creek area (I've not seen any evidence of this, but that is the speculation). The round trip is less than one mile, and it isn't very steep. I consider it an easy trail, but it is rated moderately difficult. the falls alone are worth the walk.
  • Falls were low due to low rainfall. Didn't feel like this hike took you away from civilization. Felt as if you were hiking in a campground. An easy and very short hike. No restrooms at the trailhead so be sure to stop at the campground or picnic area beforehand.
  • Uphill but very short walk at only .3 miles I show this to all my guests that come visit.
  • Water level was very very low and waterfall was more like a faucet...the hike is amazing in the fall. So Leave your dog at home (but the loud kids are ok apparently) since they are not aloud on trails...
