Honey Bee, KY - Cumberland Falls State Park - Lover's Leap

Back in the early 1950`s a bride & groom came to Cumberland Falls State Park for their honeymoon but, their honeymoon turned fatal soon after. They were at the falls area when they decided to tour the park. As they hiked down through the park trails, they came to one of the overlooks, facing back toward the falls were the view of the falls was a perfect place for a photo shoot. After standing and waiting for that perfect last view, the bride then stood atop of one of the pillars to have her picture taken. As the groom started to take the picture, she screamed his name for the last time as she fell 73 feet to her death. This overlook is now what they call "Lovers Leap ". An apparition of a floating woman motioning you to come to here has been reported. A Ranger was patrolling around the park we he was heading to the Falls Area when women dressed in a wedding gown walked right out in front of him and hitting her. When he realized he hit this woman he stopped his vehicle and began to check on the women but to his surprised there was no one to be found. To this day he fills this was the bride who died on that fatal summer night.
