Abrams Falls - moderate - 5 miles
The trail begins at the Abrams Falls parking lot at the west end of Cades
Cove Loop Road. After crossing a bridge over Abrams Creek, the trail leads
through masses of rhododendron and then begins climbing. It eventually leads to
a spectacular 20 foot high water falls with a large pool at the bottom. This is
the most hiked trail in the Cades Cove area and you will see lots of hikers out
to the falls. Use the same trail to return to your vehicle.
Parking: the Abrams Falls parking area is located in the back of Cades Cove,
4.9 miles from the entrance. After crossing the small wooden bridge turn right
at the next gravel road and drive to the end (aprox 1/2 mile).
