The loop as a whole is cool. Did not see shelter 1 or 16 as indicated on map. Did find 17 which was a large open level space and a great break spot. Trail from campground to Abrams Falls (not wet way) was nice. Shaded almost entire route. Nothing too challenging other than steep uphill at times. The Falls were beautiful but fill up quickly especially with the extra trekking time from ACC vs cades cove. Go early,after completing the falls spur we opted to complete the loop. The first wet crossing is immediate. This is the harder of the two, imo. Slippery, submerged rocks, swift current, etc. After the trail is less traveled and slightly over grown in places. After the trail merge the 2.7 miles to ACC has some uphill and the down the rest of the way. Second water crossing was a breeze with shoes on . Slower, shallower water, less large obstacles. Was happy to return to campground.

TWO WET CROSSINGS This trail crossing of Abrams Creek at Hannah mountain trail which is moderately difficult to do during drought conditions, but may be impossible or extremely hazardous during rainy season...as now! There is another wet crossing on Rabbit Creek near Abrams Creek Ranger Station. The bridge here will not be replaced

This loop was OK. It's a moderately difficult hike with two stream crossings that require you to ford the Abrams Creek. The second is the more challenging of the two and even with using trekking poles, it was tough going due to the depth and flow of the water. I'm 6-01 and the water came up to my waste. The best part of the hike is Hannah Mountain Trail since it is nicely wooded, quiet, and easy hiking. The ridge lines were not particularly attractive and the scenery is very limited, especially on the Pine Mountain section. Overall it was a decent hike, but not one I'm eager to replicate.
