It was recommended that we go to Cade’s Cove and take the Abrams Falls hike. For me, it was a challenge but I did it and I’m happy I accomplished it. It’s supposed to be a 5 mile round trip hike and is rated moderate...More

Give your self time to hike this trail. You go up and down the hills about 4 times. Not a hard trail, but can wear you out. The trail does follow a creek for awhile. The trail does have some nice scenery. Because in some...More

Nice trail. 5 miles round trip from Cades Cove. Follows river all the way with soothing sounds of water. Well traveled, but wasn’t too crowded. Falls were beautiful.

Make sure you take Plenty of Water(at least 2-3 bottles per person) and good comfortable hiking shoes. I would also recommend packing some snacks. It is 2.5 miles each way. It took me and my teenage daughters about 4 hrs round trip. That was with...More

This is a 2.5 mile hike one-way, but give yourself some time. Three hours minimum for in/out and be sure to have rugged shoes and water. We saw a number of people just dressed for swimming, but I wouldn’t want to deal with the blisters...More
