Abrams Falls Trail

Sunday, March 13, 2016
Abram Falls has the highest volume of water flow of any waterfall in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, which easily makes it one of my favorites. The drive to get here and all the things to see once you arrive in Cades Cove makes it my BEST recommendation for outdoor activities when visiting the Smokies. You' will want to come back here again and again.

There are rocky areas and tree roots along the way but if you hang in there it is well worth it. Once you arrive, you will know it. The falls are glorious, but because of the curve of the trail, they remain hidden from your view until you are only 50 yards away... but what a sight! I could honestly spent the entire day watching and admiring this falls,

Hiking Distance (Roundtrip Length): 6 Miles
Trail Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult

One of the beautiful Falls of Smoky Mountain, bigger than photo suggest.


Few of the wooden bridges you have to cross

Being there is a whole lot of fun


 The hike is pretty good and the trail is a bit rocky and jagged


Shallow waters near the waterfall where you can get down.

Great Waterfalls

  2. I love it! At first I actually thought it was in the Philippines (Hinulugang Taktak) because of the ambiance. Then I read it was in TN. LOL. I would love to visit any park with falls but I just can't at the moment. It's been four years since I've seen one. LOL.
