Cumberland Falls State Resort Park

Called the “Niagara of the South”, this 125-foot curtain of water drops 60 feet, causing a mist on the boulders in the gorge below.  The Western hemisphere’s only moonbow is a spectrum of color created by the moon’s reflection off the falls’ mist visible on a clear night during the full moon.

Cumberland Falls is a hiker’s paradise with 17 miles of hiking trails that wind through the park to scenic areas. The Moonbow Trail connects with many backpacking trails in the Daniel Boone National Forest.

SandersCookingCol. Harlan SandersDine where it all began – at Colonel Sander’s original restaurant in Corbin. Built in 1937, Sander’s Cafe has been carefully restored and placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The diner is like stepping back in time when the Colonel created his secret of 11 herbs and spices for that finger lickin’ good chicken. To walk off the meal, you can view the exhibits featuring artifacts and memorabilia from the early days of Kentucky Fried Chicken. For more information contact Harland Sanders Museum and Cafe, 688 US Hwy 25W, Corbin, KY – Phone: 606-528-2163.
