Cades Cove Hidden Treasure: Abrams Falls

One of the best things about the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the 850 miles of hiking trails and hidden treasures for visitors to explore. 

At Mountain Air Cabin Rentals, we love providing our guests with the best-hidden treasures within the Smokies. One of our favorite hidden treasures is a Cades Cove Hidden Treasure, known as the hiking trail and waterfall views, Abrams Falls. 

What is Abram Falls?

Abrams Falls is a hiking trail in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains near Gatlinburg. It is known as a hidden treasure in the Smokies and one of the most beautiful and scenic hiking trails in the National Park. The trail is a 5-mile round trip hike and is known as one of the more difficult hikes so be sure you are prepared before going! Small Waterfall

What Can You See in Abrams Falls?

Abrams Falls is known for its beauty and scenic views while hiking the trail. One specific view that this trail features is the Abrams Falls waterfall. It is only a 20-foot waterfall, but the large amount of water that rushes over the fall more than makes up for its lack of height. It’s the most voluminous and impressive waterfall in the entire park! While we don’t recommend swimming in the pool that is at the bottom of the waterfall, it does make for some beautiful views to snap a few photos by!

Where is Abrams Falls?

Abrams Falls can be found within the Cades Cove Loop starting at stop number 10. We obviously recommend driving to this stop as it is deep in the Smokies and quite a ways from where you might be staying! Once you begin the hike you will cross over a wooden bridge that goes over Abrams Creek. Once your 2.5 miles in (halfway through the hike), you will reach the waterfall. 

During the peak season, Abrams Falls sees almost 1,000 visitors every single day. At Mountain Air Cabin Rentals we are happy to provide you with any additional information you may need before beginning your adventure. We can’t wait to see you soon for your adventure!
