Tom Branch Falls
Located inside Smoky Mountains National Park in the Deep Creek Area, Tom Branch Falls is a popular area for tubing during the summer. In any other season it is simply a beautiful place for a creekside hike. The trail is 0.6 of a mile with benches to rest. To get there, from the intersection of highway 441 and 19 in Cherokee, take 19 south to Bryson City, NC. Turn left onto Everett Street, right onto Depot Street (at The Great Smoky Mountain Railway), and then left onto Deep Creek Rd. Follow the road right into the Park and follow the signs to the trail. You will see a loop and a parking lot on the left. Park in the parking lot, the trail starts at the paved loop/drop off point.
