Two Great Waterfalls So Close Together

Well we went to Cumberland Falls to paddle board from the beach area to the main falls and then someone told us that you could get to Eagle Falls by crossing over the river and floating slightly downstream. So we tried it out and we were glad we did. A short little hike to a beautiful little waterfall! You can get behind it and look out over the large rocks lining the Cumberland River. Worth the visit for sure.

Pretty But Crowded

I've done this trail several times- very short and leads to gorgeous views of Cumberland falls as well as eagle. Unfortunately extremely crowded, especially on weekends. Still the views are great!
