Known as the “Niagra of the South”, Cumberland Falls State Resort Park featured a beautiful 125 foot wide curtain of water that drops 68 feet (Photo #2 & #3). The falls is one of only two places on the planet where you can see a moonbow on a consistent basis. During full moon, a moonbow can be seen in the falls.  We hiked parallel to the Cumberland River on the Moonbow Trail that connected to moderate Eagle Falls Trail.  This 4.5 mile hike took is into the forest to Eagle Falls (Photo#4) where Matt is standing in front of the 48 foot tall falls. We climbed over and under large rocks and ledges exploring crevices (Photo#5). I had walkie talkies with headsets so we took turns with one child being the trailblazer in front with one radio and another child in the rear with another radio.
