  • No-one can tell me who Juney Whank was; but this waterfall was a delight. Small. but beautifully foirmed. 
  • 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 ...  more »
  • This was a great hike. Not too taxing...beautiful scenery. Love nature..it was perfect weather! We hiked the day before...very difficult, but this one was great.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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...
  • Good exercise. Slopes, stairs. Lovely falls.
  • The climb was a bit steep at times but not too long. Tolerable for an out of shape 50 something.
