A beautiful trail easy for the whole family. The only issue I have are all the tubers. Way too many kids on tubes. This trail is still one of my favs. Especially in the Fall and Spring wildflower seasons!

Camping in TN and decided to go for a drive. We ended up in NC and stumbled across this area. I can't believe we almost missed this. Not only were the waterfalls nice but the creek was great too. You can rent tubes at the front of the park for $6.00 and use them all day to ride the creek. Some of the rapids are rougher than you think so hold on tight. Super friendly staff and way to much fun to have by accident. Cannot wait to come back this way!!!!!!!

The Juney Whank trail should be listed as moderate to hard. Great trail with an abundance of wildflowers, butterflies, and great views. If you have a backpack, pack water shoes to wade in the creek

Great hike. Not to hard but good enough for great views of waterfalls. If want to see all three waterfalls go to left from parking lot at start of trailhead.
