Deep Creek Professional Review and Guide
"The Deep Creek that most people see is more like a little river, but then most people never venture as far into the headwaters as you will on this hike. Actually, you start on
the headwaters and follow the creek downstream, watching it grow by the mile.
By the time it reaches the Deep Creek Campground area, it’s a major stream, though not any deeper than other park streams. If you like streams, wildflowers, lush forests, and a hike long enough to make you feel that you’ve accomplished something, this is about as good as it gets in the Smokies."
