Start up the gravel road that continues from the road turnaround. In 0.2 mile you pass Tom Branch Falls on the right, dropping directly into Deep Creek on the opposite side. Only when the leaves are off the trees can you see much of this high waterfall. Soon you cross Deep Creek on an auto bridge and reach the junction with Indian Creek Trail on the right, just before Deep Creek Trail crosses Indian Creek. Turn onto Indian Creek Trail and follow it upstream. In a few hundred feet, you pass Indian Creek Falls—a long, steep, sliding cascade. You can see it from the trail or take a side path to the base for a closer view.
