Juney Whank Falls
A perfect stop on the hike to Tom Branch Falls and Indian Creek Falls.
Fed by Juney Whank Branch, the falls includes a combination of cascades and sliding water, the largest portion of which has a height of 25 feet. Historians argue over whether the falls were named for Junaluska “Juney” Whank, who lived in the area, was named after the famous Cherokee chief Junaluska, and was supposedly buried nearby, or for the Cherokee phrase “Juney Whank,” meaning, “where the bear passes.”
