Juney Whank Falls

juney whank fallsFrom the parking lot in the Deep Creek area of the Great Smoky Mountains, there are several short hikes that are worthy of your afternoon. One of those is the moderate hike to see Juney Whank Falls. Though the trail is short, just over half a mile roundtrip, it is rated moderate to difficult because of the steep section leading to the falls. There is an elevation gain of 194 feet in the first quarter-mile from the parking lot to the falls. View the falls from the footbridge that crosses Juney Whank Branch.

Directions to the Trailhead:Follow the signs to the national park through downtown Bryson City, NC to Deep Creek Campground. Continue past the campground to the trailhead at the end of Deep Creek Road. Backtrack on foot 0.1 mile along the road to the trail.
