    Added by Joshua Contois

    Juney Whank Falls in Great Smoky National Park is made of two tiers. These two falls drop for a total of 90 feet.  

    Starting at the Deep Creek Trailhead, take a short walk until the trail meets up with Juney Whank Falls Trail. From here, hang a left and head onto the Juney Whank Falls Trail. Once you've reached the falls, continue the loop to get back to the trailhead. 

    The falls are said to be named after Mr. Junaluska "Juney" Whank who is believed to be buried in the area. 

    Please no dogs on this trail.
