Juney Whank Falls is an easy kid friendly loop hike in Great Smoky Mountains National Park that leads to a beautiful two tier waterfall. The Juney Whank Falls Trail is just off the Deep Creek Trail. The park says "Juney Whank Falls is divided into an upper and lower section. Both can be viewed from the footbridge which crosses Juney Whank Branch at the falls. Together they drop 90 feet from top to bottom." This trail is a great choice for hikers traveling with young children or the elderly. There is plenty of camping available in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

History
