Imagine a wall of water falling 60 feet into a boulder-strewn gorge, a whispering mist that kisses the face, and a magical moonbow visible on a clear night under a full moon. Known as the Niagara of the South, the 125-foot wide curtain of water is dramatic day or night. But it’s only at night during a full moon that you can see the moonbow, a phenomenon not found anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere. The area is a natural choice for water-sports enthusiasts, offering white-water rafting and canoeing among other water activities. As spectacular as the setting that surrounds it, the historic Dupont Lodge, built of massive hemlock beams and knotty pine, offers a spectacular view of the Cumberland River Valley.
