gem icon Abrams Falls

Overview

Abrams Falls is a beautiful 20-foot waterfall that provides a great opportunity for swimming in the 100-foot wide swimming hole at the bottom of the falls. It's a great opportunity to cool off after the 2.5-mile run, before returning to the parking lot from which you came. This gem is especially beautiful during the summer months, so try to visit it then.

Half-Day Run: From the Cades Cove Abrams Creek Parking area, run 2.5 miles to the falls.

Family Friendly: It's an easy run with a beautiful waterfall and creek where the children can play in the water. While the waterfall can be dangerous if climbed, the swimming hole at the bottom is great.

Some Mud, Fallen Trees - A few fallen trees but you can work around them with a little time. The water was too high to get across the first river crossing at mile 2.5 so we had to turn around.
