  • The trail was at the entrance of the Deep Creek Rd, we parked our car and walked a trail of about 2 miles. It is relaxing but a workout at the same time. The weather was cool (cold for us Floridians) ...  more »
  • This was a short hike 0.3 mi from parking lot, but almost all uphill, easy climbing. Wide trail. Rewarded with view, and bench to sit and relax watching the falls.  more »
  • We were lucky that our first visit was just after 3 days of rain. The water was cascading very nicely. Easy to get to. Nice to access 3 falls in one area.  more »

  • Very beautiful place to visit. Be sure you have your hiking boots on. It is quite a climb up to the small falls. But once there take the time to sit, rest, and reflect. We really enjoyed the park. My 6 year old tried to climb the side of the "Mountain" and had a blast. A great little gem. We may have to go back and do some camping one day.
  • It's a little creek fall but beautiful one.
  • A nice little waterfall. I would say it's worth the hike to go see it.
  • 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.
