Description

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 hike, 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 Hike: From the Cades Cove Abrams Creek Parking area, hike 2.5 miles to the falls.

Family Friendly: It's an easy hike 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.
