Directions to Trailhead:
From Gatlinburg, drive into the National Park on the main Parkway. When you pass the Sugarlands Visitor Center on your right, take note of your mileage and continue 32.1 miles through the National Park. Once you reach the intersection of Route 441 and Route 19 in Cherokee, turn right on Route 19 and continue for 10 miles to Bryson City. Turn right onto Everett and continue for 0.2 miles to Bryson Street. Turn right onto Bryson Street and continue for 0.2 miles. Take your third left, which is Ramseur Street. Make your second right, which is Deep Creek Road. Continue on Deep Creek Road for 2.8 miles to the Indian Creek Falls trailhead (you will enter park 0.5 miles prior to arriving at the trailhead.
Note: Since the Indian Creek Falls hike is over an hour drive from downtown Gatlinburg, we recommend combining this activity with a trip to nearby Cherokee or Bryson City.
The Bottom Line:
The Indian Creek Falls hike is an easy, 1.9 mile roundtrip hike that features gorgeous views of the 80-foot Toms Branch Falls and the 45-foot Indian Creek Falls. Due to the low difficulty combined with the multiple waterfalls, we highly recommend this trail!
