Amazing, amazing trails that lead to the back-end of Cades Cove. The vegetation, landscape and ecosystems found on these trails are different than other areas in the smokies. Many areas of the trail are wide and more muddy than rocky. If you go just after rain, be prepared to get dirty. If you get a good start early in the day, you can make it to Abrams Falls from this location, but know you will have quite the trek up and down many tall hills. Highly recommend!
