Deep Creek's Three Waterfall Loop is a pleasant and relatively easy hike that offers views of three different waterfalls, wildflowers and wildlife.

Start the loop by hiking the Juney Whank Falls Trail to Juney Whank Falls. The footbridge across the creek makes an excellent place to rest and take in the falls. Follow the trail across the bridge and up the bank. After about 300 feet take a right and follow Deep Creek Horse Trail towards Deep Creek Trail.

After intersecting with Deep Creek Trail turn left and walk about half a mile passing Tom Branch Falls on the way. You can choose to stop and view the 60' falls now or catch a glimpse of them on the way back. Continue up the until the junction with Indian Creek trail, turning right onto Indian Creek trail and continuing one tenth of a mile to Indian Creek Falls. Indian Creek Falls is a beautiful 25' cascade, so make sure to bring a camera. Afterwards, backtrack down Deep Creek Trail to the parking lot making sure to see Tom Branch Falls if you didn't earlier!

During the Summer expect the trail to be filled with people tubing. Also bring something to swim in if it's hot out as there are plenty of swimming holes along the creek.

Really Pretty Falls.

The pin for the trailhead on this adventure isn't in the right spot. It leads you to the rangers cabin that isn't for public access.

Deep Creek

Easy nice hike for anyone. Waterfalls are beautiful.
