Fall color was pretty. Hiked trails all around the falls. Picture worthy views of Cumberland Falls pretty much available on all. Beautiful smaller waterfalls on trails. Friendly folks hiking. Very enjoyable afternoon. Need more parking.

Short walk to the falls. The falls are beautiful. Make sure you go to both the top and bottom views. No fee to see the falls

Cumberland Falls is very pretty. We viewed the falls during the day and saw a rainbow. We went back at night and saw the famous moon bow. Quite a phenomenon unique to this place. There are hiking trails in the area, too.
