Niagara of The South

Located along the Cumberland River in Kentucky is a waterfall known as the “Niagara of The South”. Cumberland Falls stands 60-feet tall by 125-feet wide, and, on this particular day (following substantial rains) was brown with soil and very loud.

Waterfalls In Kentucky

I recently enjoyed a road trip to Kentucky with a friend and her energetic yellow Labrador Retriever. We visited both Eagle Falls & Cumberland Falls following a substantial rain, with high water colored brown from surface materials swept downstream. Between clouds, sunlight also streamed through heavy mist providing a sustained rainbow over the plunge pool.

Stopping first at the Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, we had a sneak peak of the “Niagara of The South” – Cumberland Falls, which stands 60-feet tall by 125-feet wide. With adjoining counties having issued flood warning advisories, the Cumberland River was flowing fast and loudly:

Hiking 3 miles out-and-back, the Eagle Falls Trail was slippery with wet leaves and mud, but the views were impressive. Here are a few photographs from our hike, including a view of Cumberland Falls:

Renown as the only location in the western hemisphere to have a “Moonbow”, the park provides ample parking, restrooms, visitor center, gift shop, local music and, most important of all, wonderful scenic overlooks. Here are a few examples:

Conasauga Falls

Located near Tellico Plains close to the Cherohala Skyway, the 30-foot Conasauga Falls is a secluded, three-tiered waterfall not far from Knoxville or Chattanooga, Tennessee. The trail is a relatively easy 1.5 mile hike out-and-back, with an elevation gain of 370 feet. And, despite what some people have said online in review of their visit, the gravel roadway to the falls isn’t that bad – just watch for a few deep potholes.

This visit followed an earlier, same day hike to Falls Branch Falls, an adventure organized by my friend, Lara – thanks again!
