Abrams Fall is a popular waterfall with a 25 foot drop over a rocky cliff beside it. The trail is well maintained. It does have a few spots with roots and rocks. The trail gets a lot of use. Expect other hikers. At certain times of the year, it will be extremely crowded.

I loved this hike and waterfall. I have only completed it once and everyone is different - I am a pretty active person and this was a very rocky and a little challenging. It is quite the incline (of course nothing compared to Mt. Leconte) but still a beautiful trail and waterfall. I did hike it pretty fast though. Next time, Id like to take my time.

Though many are tempted to swim in this area - please be cautious. This is known as one of the most hazardous hikes due to the number of deaths within the water at the falls. Very slippery rocks and a lot of undertows. I would not recommend going into the water even though it is tempting!
