We enjoyed this trail a lot. There were some gradual moderate ups and some gradual moderate downs. But nothing overly demanding. Minimal creek crossings. A couple of steep inclines and declines but they were short. Highly recommend.

I did this loop beginning at Goldmine Trailhead rather than Abrams. I was skeptical because of reviews, which only made me appreciate it when everything turned out great! Little Bottoms was the only trouble with big downed trees, but it was fun! I didn’t see another person the entire 11.2. Trail wasn’t marked, but easy to follow. Hatcher Mtn Tr was overgrown in some places, yes. But it was fine! Super enjoyable as the Smokies never disappoint!

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!

One of our favorites rides... Peaceful and beautiful with scenic vistas, creeks all the way out to cades cove. We saw deer, black bear and a huge wild hog on the trails
