|Foot bridge at the beginning of our hike|
The trail follows Abrams Creek all the way to the falls. The creek can be seen and heard as the trail rises far above the water and then drops back down to creek level again. There are 4 stream crossings, but all were on foot bridges.
About half way to the falls, we passed an area which had damage from recent tornadoes. Many trees have been lost in this quarter mile section which was sad to see. The trail has been cleared so there was no problems with blowdowns. It was in this section that we saw so many Bleeding Hearts and large patches of star chickweed.
Abrams Falls was spectacular. More water rushing over than I’ve ever seen. (I think this is my 4th hike to the falls.) We found a rock with a good view for our lunch spot and sat back just enjoying the beauty of the place and the day.
