Known as the Niagara of the South, Cumberland Falls attracts outdoor enthusiasts and the curious each year. The reason being is that it offers a phenomenon not found anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere. The 125 ft waterfall displays a moonbow at night during a full moon that is truly a sight to see. While spectacular, the moonbow isn't nearly all that Cumberland Falls has to offer. Horseback riding, 17 miles of hiking trails, and opportunities for paddling and fishing on the Cumberland River.
