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.

Cases Cove needs to update their signs lol because it's further than 2.5 miles but it's definitely worth the hike. Amazing, Beautiful!

Not a tough trail. The views at points are amazing. Abrams Falls is worth the hike alone.

This is a great hike. Nice terrain, falls at the end are beautiful. There are four bridges - once you cross the fourth bridge you're almost to the falls. AllTrails shows this trail beginning at the Elijah Oliver Place trail parking lot. You can start there or continue on the loop road until you see signs for Abrams Falls Trail. The parking lot is bigger and there are restrooms there.

Did this hike today. Definitely moderate with many rocks and roots to navigate. Beautiful views.

Encountered a mother bear w two cubs on this trail. I happened to come here on 8/21/17 (solar eclipse day) and it was crowded. The waterfall at the end is nice.

Beautiful forest and river views all the way to the falls. Nice lookout area on large rocks mid-way thru. Some steep climbs,definitely a moderate trail. Loved the entire hike. Falls are beautiful.

My sons and I enjoyed the hike. We took water this time which was helpful. You think 5 or 6 mile hike wouldn't be so bad but being from Illinois it was more challenging than we thought. Beautiful!
