However, there is also an outdoor adventure that’s best had after the sun goes down. Within Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, right at the largest waterfall in the state, you can witness a phenomenon that only happens at night. The rare Moonbow is a must-see sight for everyone and this one magical nighttime hike in Kentucky needs to be on every bucket list.
