Return To Cumberland Falls

Located in Corbin, Kentucky, Cumberland Falls, in addition to being the only location in the Western Hemisphere to have a “Moonbow”, is also known as the Niagara of The South. Spanning 125-feet across the Cumberland River, the falls stand 60-feet tall and generate a thunderous sound of falling water which echoes throughout the gorge.

It’s a very popular tourist destination, with a broad range of hospitality amenities to enjoy – kayaking, horseback riding, hiking, public pool, restaurants, motels, camping and cabins for rent. On site is ample parking, restrooms, gift shop, visitor center, scenic overlooks, picnic tables, and sometimes a local musician.

Eagle Falls Trail, Kentucky

Eagle Falls Trail

Eagle Falls

Located in Corbin of McCreary County, Kentucky, on the other side of the Cumberland River is Eagle Falls Trail, a 1.5 mile trail along cliffs offering some of the best views of Cumberland Falls (see Road Trip To Kentucky: Part One).

I would rate this trail as difficult, insofar as there are several steep changes in elevation – with 133 steps up to Gorge Overlook, now overgrown and without a view – and uneven hiking surfaces, as seen below:

Note: if you’re interested in hiking this trail, plan to arrive early to secure one of only approx. 15 parking spaces. And, don’t forget your camera!

Sights To See

There are many points of interest to enjoy while hiking Eagle Falls Trail, including:

At one point along my hike, I followed a side trail away from the river and into the forest. When I emerged, it was as if I had stepped back in time – into a ghost town

Back To The Water

Exiting the forest, I returned back to the river which was lined with many large boulders. Rather than rush to get to the waterfall, I enjoyed the scenery for a spell before continuing on my trek…

Cumberland Falls

Known as the “Niagara of the South”, Cumberland Falls features an impressive 125′ wide curtain of water that plunges 60′ into a boulder-strewn gorge below.

The waterfall was named by Dr. Thomas Walker during a 1750 exploration of Kentucky, after the Duke of Cumberland, a son of King George II of England. Additional history of the area can be read here.

Cumberland Falls photographs were shot both at the Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, and along the Eagle Falls Trail (across the river).

Learning of Cumberland Falls back in the mid-1990’s, I traveled to the area for two days of hiking & camping. At that time, I shot photographs using a disposable Kodak camera. Years later – with a better camera – I returned to enjoy the great outdoors!

Cumberland Falls is known as the only location in the Western Hemisphere to have a “moonbow”. If interested in seeing this natural phenomenon, you can check this Moonbow Calendar of dates (weather permitting). Visitors will find ample parking, restrooms, gift shop, visitor center, scenic overlooks, picnic tables, and maybe a musician playing a flute for tourists, complementing the sound of falling water.

Here are some more photographs of Cumberland Falls:
