Hike to two scenic falls in Great Smoky Mountains National Park located near Bryson City, NC. 

From the Deep Creek Trailhead, you can hike to both waterfalls heading up the Deep Creek Trail. You will come across Tom Branch Falls quickly, after 0.2 miles. Once you've had your fill of Tom Branch, head further along the Deep Creek Trail for another 0.5 miles. Turn right on the Indian Creek Trail and hike for 0.1 miles until you reach Indian Creek Falls.  

On your return, you can head back the way you came or head back to the Deep Creek Trail and continue on the path until you reach the Deep Creek Horse Trail (0.2 miles from the Deep Creek - Indian Creek junction). This loop takes you by Juney Whank Falls before making it back to the trailhead.

Pretty waterfall

Really pretty waterfalls up an easy trail. Also a great spot for fly fishing! Best after some good rainfall.
