My husband and I visited on a Monday -- and it wasn't crowded at all! Nice, short trails to view the falls. We didn't do any of the longer ones. Falls are beautiful!

We spent a week with a 7 and a 10 years old in a cabin. The two bedroom cabin was specious and well equipped. We hiked daily on wonderful trails which are not too difficult for youngsters. The resort and the park offers a number...More

We stayed at the Dupont lodge and it is dated and needs a good cleaning. Perhaps because it was a busy time the front desk was quick and short with responses. The restaurant is overpriced and under whelming! I still cannot believe that I had...More

We had had a full day of exploring waterfalls and Cumberland falls was the last of the day. Don't get me wrong the falls were gorgeous but you had to fight the crowds just to catch a view. I suggest trying Cumberland first thing in...More

Great vantage points, good trails, nice gift shop. If you visit, I recommend also kayaking or canoeing through Sheltowee Adventure Resort.

This was a day trip destination from Columbus based on the review, "Niagra of the south". We went straight to the falls... and Niagra it is not. It was sad. There is potential, but the park was under construction so a couple overlooks were closed....More

Beautiful impressive Cumberland Falls worth the long drive during daylight. But until the repairs to the viewing area are finish, don't expect to see the Moonbow. Only visible from an area that is currently off limits. Call the park to inquire about repair status AND...More

How far of a hike is it

Response from AquatenniiaT | Reviewed this property |
I'd say you can see the top of the falls in less than a quarter mile hike. The bottom of the falls is down a number of flights of stairs, so the distance is probably less daunting than the climb back up after viewing....

Response from nabenom | Reviewed this property |
Not sure what you're asking. the trails are open at night because that's when the moonbow is out. the trails are clear, well marked and more like packed walkways. There are people out, but it's of course, always safer in a... More
