Abrams Water Falls Cades Cove (Most dangerous Trail) NC


Abrams Water Falls Cades cove NC

  • Abrams Falls trail in Cades Cove is one of the most well-known waterfall hikes in the Smoky Mountains
  • From Gatlinburg, turn right at the Sugarlands Visitor Center onto Little River Road toward Cades Cove, where you will travel nearly halfway around the 11-mile loop road to the parking area for the 5-mile round-trip hike to Abrams Falls
  • You will climb to approximately 1,800 feet at one point, but when you arrive at the waterfall, you will actually be 300 feet lower than your starting point
  • Eighteen smaller streams drain the slopes of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and empty into Abrams Creek
  •  mist created by the plunge of the falls creates a naturally fresh mountain air, and the pool is a wonderful spot to pause, cool off
  • October 2008 issue of Backpacker Magazine listed their top 10 most dangerous hikes in America. The list was developed using casualty statistics as a result of lightning, altitude sickness, extreme weather and drowning, among several other measures
  •  The magazine ranked this pathway as the ninth most dangerous hiking trail in the country, mainly as a result of high exposure to drowning and hypothermia hazards. The article cited 29 deaths on this trail since 1971 as a result of water related accidents.
