Fairly challenging hike to see three different falls, including the one listed. Also went off the loop on a steep climb to find a cemetery at the top of a ridge line. About 7.5 miles total. A great afternoon if you like the mountains and...More

Nice easy hike on wide gravel path. There are three waterfalls, two on the same path, Tom Branch Falls and Indian Creek Falls. Both are very pretty and easy stroll.

Nice falls, easy hike. The GPS sent me on a dirt one lane road, but I finally arrived. Then saw parking lot leading to paved road back into town. Saw all three falls, less than an hour relaxing walk.

Moderately easy walk from the parking lot, only one set of stairs to navigate. Just a longer stroll on a maintained running trail. Of the three waterfalls it's not the easiest or the hardest to get to.

Beautiful location to spend a Sunday morning. Offering trails for those with little experience and those that wish to lace up the boots for a day hike. The falls are just as amazing.

I usually just hike up to the top of the tube trail to see this waterfall. We set the tubes down to enjoy the scenery before heading down Deep Creek. I've also walked up the creek above Indian Creek Falls to fly fish, but that...More

We continued down the trail after visiting Tom Branch Falls to this beauty. The trail had some incline, but nothing too difficult. This falls is past the tubing put in spot, so there were less people out this way.

Follow Deep Creek for less than a mile. On the way there you will pass Toms' Branch Falls. On the way back, you might consider taking a detour up the hill to Juney Whank Falls. If you go to Juney Whank, just know your personal...More

Yes there is a campground right there at Indian Creek. I believe there is place for hookups and primitive (tent) camping. Showers and bathrooms. Tube rentals nearby too.
