Fun and easy hike. The path of gravel, mostly flat and very wide. Lots of shade and pretty walk along the river.

Easiest of the 3 waterfalls to view. A casual walk from the parking lot. Make sure to wear appropriate footwear.

Easy walk to the 3 falls. It had rained for several days so the falls were flowing nicely and made for great picture taking. My favorite area in the Smokies.

The hike to Tom Branch Falls was flat and wide and easy compared to the hike to Juney Whank Falls. The falls themselves were small, but nice to see just the same. I took more pleasure watching the rafters and adults wading in the river....More

Just about anyone can make their way to this fall. It is a short walk from the parking lot and well worth it because it is a beautiful fall.
