Cumberland Falls is located on the Cumberland River and about an hour from Lake Cumberland. Known as the “Niagara of the South,” the 125-foot wide curtain of water is dramatic day or night. But it’s only at night during a full moon that you can see the moonbow, a phenomenon not found anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere. Sheltowee Trace Outfitters offers a ‘Rainbow Mist Ride’ to Cumberland Falls, Wed. – Sun., from mid-June through Labor Day weekend, water and weather permitting.
