Abram Falls, Great Smoky Mountains National Park

While considered a moderately difficult trail and coming in at only 5 miles roundtrip, the strong currents and undertow of the creek at the base of the falls are what make this hike extremely dangerous. According to the National Park Service, water recreation is not recommended in the park. Drowning is one of the leading causes of death and many others have fallen to their deaths from climbing the rocks near the waterfalls. If you plan on visiting Abram Falls, check out the National Park Service’s Water Safety guide.
