Abrams Falls


The Abrams Falls Trail runs parallel to Abrams Creek and passes Abrams Falls, one of the most voluminous waterfalls in the Great Smoky Mountains, before terminating at a junction with the Hatcher and Hannah Mountain trails.

  • Abrams Creek, the longest stream entirely within the boundaries of the national park, follows alongside the trail for most of its length, as it plunges over Abrams Falls and into one of the largest natural pools in the area, which, during busy seasons, is often teeming with visitors swimming in its waters.
  • The creek and waterfall were named for a Cherokee Indian Chief Oskuah, who later adopted the name Abram.
  • The trailhead is located inside Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, about 10 miles (16 km) from Townsend, Tennessee.
