“A short and beautiful trail offering great views of the Juney Whank Falls.”— Max Willner
Shortly into the trail, runners will soon hear the falls before they reach them. Eventually, they'll reach a small footbridge with a great view of Juney Whank Falls. The falls are about 50' tall. Please be careful, though, as the rocks around the fall can be very slippery.
For runners looking for a longer loop, they can take the Deep Creek Horse Trail, then turn right on Deep Creek Trail back to the parking area.
As for local fauna, black bears are common in the area, along with white-tailed deer and 31 species of salamanders.
Birdwatchers can spot a variety of species, notably the northern flicker (Colaptes auratus) and red-eyed vireo (Vireo olivaceus).
For more information on black bears, refer to this webpage.
