We had to cancel the hike shown in your handbook for this date. So, due to popular demand, we will be hiking to Abrams Falls instead (originally scheduled in January but cancelled due to road closures). Beautiful Abrams Falls is stunning any time of year. From the parking lot about half way around Cades Cove, we hike 2.5 miles to the falls. We climb a little over Arbutus Ridge, where we’ll have views of Abrams Creek gorge. The falls themselves plunge 20 feet over a wide-stepped sandstone ledge. Then we’ll retrace our steps back to the cars. Hike is 5 miles total, rated easy to moderate. Meet at Alcoa Food City, 131 N Hall Rd., Alcoa (note this store is now closed) ready to leave at 7:15am {drive: 60 miles RT @ 10¢/mile = $6.00} or at the parking lot for Abram Falls at 8:30am. The leader will meet the group at the trailhead, not the carpool site.

Leaders: Pat Watts and Taylor Weatherbee

Leader contact information is included under Additional Information in the email you receive after registration.
