The Falls are located in Cumberland Falls State Park and can be easily reached over a State-maintained road recently finished. Cumberland Falls is sometimes called "Kentucky's Niagara." The Falls are about sixty-eight feet in height, average width about 125 feet. The tremendous volume of water that passes over the falls at times creates a roar and a mist of a young Niagara. The moonbow seen from the falls during full moon on clear nights is a natural phenomenon occurring in only two places in the world-Victoria Falls in Southern Africa and Cumberland Falls in Kentucky.
