Highlights:

This is an easy loop hike that starts at Deep Creek, goes past Juney Whank Falls then loops back to the starting point. Juney Whank is a Cherokee phrase which means “place where the bear passes.” We didn’t see any bear, but saw plenty of day hikers. Still there are great views of the falls from a footbridge on the trail.
