Return to Eagle Falls

Located along the Cumberland River in Corbin, Kentucky, the scenic Eagle Falls stands 30-feet tall. The trail is relatively short – rated as moderate with several changes in elevation and some rocky areas – and certainly well worth the effort!

Parking is limited so it’s best to visit during the weekdays, if possible, or arrive early on the weekend. There are no restrooms on site, though such is available immediately across the river at the Cumberland Falls State Resort Park – home of the impressive Cumberland Falls, also known as “The Niagara of the South”.

Prints are available in my gallery – framed, canvas, metal, art, poster, wood, acrylic and tapestry. Plus, more…

Here is Eagle Falls. Fed from Brummett Branch, water drains into the Cumberland River through several large boulders. Along the hike you’ll also encounter what are probably the best views of Cumberland Falls – see video below.

Here are a few shots from the trail. The third shot was photographed from across the Cumberland River, in which, if you look closely, you’ll see the wooden railing along the hiking trail to Eagle Falls.


Note: if you have a fear of heights, then you may not want to watch this video. At the end, it reveals Cumberland Falls – more on that later.

Prints make a great gift-giving idea and may be enjoyed all year long on a wall in your home, office, business lobby, hospital or cafeteria setting. Enjoy the great outdoors & thanks for visiting!

          You are welcome, Annabel! 💕🍵 Yes, the sound of water soothes, is calming to find balance and reenergize – especially in nice weather (yesterday I wore shorts & t-shirt). 👍 Have a pleasant evening. 🤗🌸
