Indian Creek Falls

A Beautiful Waterfall in a Serene Setting

The Deep Creek area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is located just north of downtown Bryson City, NC and is a beautiful area of the park. Deep Creek is home to 3 waterfalls - Juney Whank, Tom Branch, and Indian Creek Falls. All 3 are family friendly and are easy to moderate hikes. This area is very popular for tubing and gets very busy during the warmer months, so get here early. Fall and winter hikes are especially tranquil, as the trails are less busy.

If you're only going to visit Indian Creek Falls, you'll pass Tom Branch Falls along the way. This 1.6 mile round trip easy hike to Indian Creek Falls originates from the Deep Creek parking area. The Deep Creek trail - which is an old logging road - follows Deep Creek up stream. Walk Deep Creek Trail 0.7 mile to the junction with Indian Creek Trail. On your way you can view the elegant, 60' high Tom Branch Falls located on the far side of Deep Creek. Turn right at the junction with Indian Creek Trail and proceed approximately 200' to Indian Creek Falls.
