Surrounded by the pristine Daniel Boone National Forest, Corbin lies at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and is home to Cumberland Falls State Resort Park — deemed the Niagara of the South and site of the only known moonbow existing in the Western Hemisphere. Nearby sits Colonel Sanders' original restaurant serving Kentucky Fried Chicken and Laurel Lake with its 206 miles of scenic shoreline.
Dine in one of downtown’s many locally owned and operated eateries (be sure to try an Old World Style handcrafted burger), shop along the revitalized Main Street filled with unique shops and boutiques, and stroll through the Colonel’s “secret herb recipe garden.” See the last steam engine built in South Louisville in 1922 now on display, complete with an original L&N caboose. Head over to the Corbin Motor Speedway for “Short Track Asphalt Racing at Its Finest” or speed on your own track at Gerry’s Roller Rink. Then venture out and enjoy the 5,600 acres of beautiful Laurel Lake, white water raft, go horseback riding, hike the Moonbow Trail or backpack through the forest on one of a dozen trails suitable for all skill levels throughout Cumberland.
