4.2 miles from the trailhead to the interaction with Hannah Mountain trail, but 2.5 miles from the trailhead to Abram’s Falls.
This trail has recently (2021) been rehabbed by the NPS. Which makes it a very nice hike. They added stairs, smoothed out rough sections, and did a lot of maintenance to this trail. The trail begins, and travels along Abrams Creek. If you arrive early, you might be lucky enough to see the Smoky Mountain river otters playing and hunting in Abrams Creek. Highly recommended to get to the trailhead early in the summer, as this trail is very popular. But to access this trail, the Cades Cove loop road must be open, and the gate opens at 8 am.
The trailhead is located 4.2 miles from the start of the Cades Cove loop road entrance. The road (with a sign indicating Abrams Falls trailhead) is on your left.
Would be a great hike for children, but do not allow them to swim in the area with the waterfall. Several deaths have occurred, and a warning sign is located at the falls as a reminder.
