Just a short walk but it's uphill most of the way. Very nice waterfall with a bench to rest and view the falls.

We walked to Juney Whank, Indian and Toms Branch falls. The hike to Juney Whank is short but steep. The trail to the others is very wide, crushed gravel for much of the way. All three falls are beautiful but fairly small. We went early in the day before the tubers where out. As we were leaving many people where coming up the trail to start their day of tubing the creek. These falls are in the Deep Creek area of the park near Bryson City, NC. If you're interested in longer hikes just continue past the falls on one of several other trails.

We hiked all 3 falls in this area (Juney Whank, Toms Branch, and Indian) and it was a blast. They are all easy to get to, very nice paths and amazing views. If you are in this area do not miss this!

There is a great bridge that sits just below the falls that you can get some amazing pictures from!

Parking can be limited but you can walk a little further to the next parking lot.

We did the 3 falls hike (Juney Whank, Toms Branch, & Indian). They are all easy to get to. Started with JW which is a short hike with a little bit of a climb. Falls sits above a neat little bridge. Parking can be tight.

I am 66 years old. The steep climb to Juney Whank Falls was well worth the uphill hike. I decided not to do the loop so returned to the 3 waterfalls parking area and headed to Tom Branch Falls on the bike/hiking trail. It is only .2 tenths of a mile. Tom Branch was taller than June Whank but less volume....still quite pretty. I continued to walk toward the Indian Creek Falls which was about .6 miles. On the way were several great views of the river.
The path had one section with a noticeable incline but still very family friendly. Indian Creek Falls was my favorite...simply spectacular!!!
The only negative was that the stairs going down to Indian Creek could use a railing for stability (at least for someone my age)
