The park itself is really pretty! The waterfall and hike is small. We like something more adventurous but this would be great for others or maybe even younger ones!

Nice waterfall but drove from gatlinburg for this short hike. Worth doing once. Won't drive that far again. Campground looked amazing though

Good. Not very long. Uphill to the falls but worth the effort. Nice little footbridge across fall.

Nice and short trail if you are wanting to cool down after hiking one of the longer trails or if you are short on time. Still some good scenery to be seen. This trail seems to be a little more traveled simply because of the difficulty level.

Easy hike. There are much prettier falls in the deep creek area though.

Very hard to get a parking place as there were lots of people tubing and camping.Nice wide trail, very well groomed, only a few roots going down to see Indian Creek Falls,Juney Whank is a pretty good uphill pull for about a 1/4 mile but worth the effort. It was very hot the day we did this hike and we were certainly over dressed but I did not know that the trails were so well groomed.

A nice ending to the Deep Creek/Indian Creek loop trail. You can see 3 waterfalls along the loop. Mostly flat until you hike the deep creek portion up the ridge. Excellent hike for an easygoing afternoon. Plenty of flat spots to have a picnic along the way! In May the wild flowers are an added bonus!

It's not a bad little hike if you are already in the Deep Creek area. That said, there are nicer hikes to nicer waterfalls that are less out of the way in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. If you are in the Deep Creek area and are willing to walk a little farther (1.5 miles round trip), Indian Creek Falls are much nicer.

On nice summer days, expect crowds. Deep Creek is a popular spot for tubing.
