The hike to Tom Branch Falls is going to pick up from the bridge over Juney Whank Falls. Continue across the bridge and connect back to the Deep Creek Horse Trail. The trail is going to be mostly downhill and it will take you back to the Deep Creek Trail that runs along Deep Creek. At the intersection with the Deep Creek Trail make a left. If you make a right it will lead you back to the parking area. Continue upstream until you see two benches on the bank of the creek. Tom Branch Falls is on the other side of the creek. Tom Branch empties into Deep Creek at the base of Tom Branch Falls.

The hike is kid friendly and along Deep Creek flat. You can shoot from the bank of the creek, either including or excluding the large trees on the near side of the creek.

From here the final stop, Indian Creek Falls is just over 0.5 miles away.
