On the first full day (May 20) of our vacation in Townsend, TN, Greg and I drove through Cades Cove in the wee hours of the morning (okay, like 8am) so that we could get an early start on a popular hiking trail. The Abram’s Fall trail can be located just off of the Cades Cove loop soon before you get to the half-way point. You take a right turn onto a gravel road which will take you to the trail head. The trail itself follows Abram’s Creek for 2.5 miles (making it a 5 mile round trip) and terminates at the falls themselves. It’s a moderately difficult hike with the trail going up and down several hills, but there’s nothing too steep. We’ve done this trail once before several years ago, and it seemed a lot tougher back then than it did this time (now we’ve conquered a lot more strenuous trails, making this one pale in comparison). Overall, it was a gorgeous hike and an absolutely wonderful day.
