Connector between the road and Abrams’ falls parking area. The actual connector before you get to the cabin trail is empty and peaceful. The part along the water is serene. One of the few places this close to activity where you can be alone in the quiet of nature Tip: don’t follow the trail from Abrams’ parking lot if that’s where you are starting from. Go over the bridge, turn right towards the cabin, then be right again to follow the water. Following the actual trail required a water crossing

Short easy trail. It was quiet and secluded and ends where Abrams Falls trails starts so it’s a nice way to get to that trail. A little overgrown but not impassable. It does NOT take you to the waterfall shown in the photo above.

fairly easy trail, very narrow path, sometimes difficult to see.

First to Review

rated moderate due to the overgrowth or narrow trail? We easily did this hike and added on Elijah Oliver trail. Laurel falls and clingmans dome are harder than this. many logs to climb over/on by river due to fallen trees so keep an eye on kids. eventually this joins another trail for waterfalls.
