“Steep grades on a lightly traveled 0.75-mile singletrack leading to the stunning Abrams Falls.”— Robert Bradley
The trail is narrow, and there is a sharp drop down to the creek. About 0.25 miles in, the trail takes a hard left, and ascends this hillside. There are blue trail blazes marking the main trail. Take the ascent, and then begin the even steeper descent down into the horseshoe in which you'll find the falls.
At the hard left starting the ascent on the way out, there is an option to go straight following the creek, which, if followed about 50 yards, leads to what I'll call "Upper Abrams Falls." These are cascade type falls, and are quite nice, with about 30 feet of cascades.
