Kentucky Kiwanis Trail near Cumberland Falls State Park

The Kentucky Kiwanis Trail historic marker commemorates the creation of the Corbin-Cumberland Falls Road. The road was built by the Kiwanis Club of Corbin and was dedicated in 1931. This trail is what actually opened Cumberland Falls to the public for all to enjoy.

We were traveling from Paris, Kentucky on U.S. 27 when we found this historic marker about the Kiwanis Trail. The trail leads to the very special Cumberland Falls State Park.

Not only do the falls plunge six stories but during certain times of year, you can see the only moonbow in the northern hemisphere.

However; without the Kentucky Kiwanis Trail, it wouldn't have been possible. I'm glad that historic markers dot the highways and roadways across the United States. They allow me to better appreciate my travels. Here's a little more about our road trip through Corbin, Kentucky near Cumberland Falls.
