Trail in the clouds. While parts of the trail can be clear, others can be shrouded by fog, part of the reason the area is known as the Smokies.

A tree crosses Abrams Creek. Unless you want to cross the creek on the log, you either have to wade or take an alternate route to the access trail from the Elijah Oliver Cabin.
