Smoky Mountain Waterfalls: Indian Creek Falls

Smoky mountain rocky waterfall river flowing in autumn fall leaves nature

Indian Creek Falls is a 1.5-mile roundtrip hike out of the Deep Creek Area. Sliding down 35 feet of sloping rock strata, the water livens and cools the air. This is an old road trail paralleling Deep Creek. It provides an easy grade and a good walking surface. There are pines, oaks, rhododendron and hemlock, with wildflowers in the wetter places. Along the route is Tom’s Branch Falls, another beautiful fall.
