Hiking in Coal Country
If you're in downtown Williamson and fix your eyes upon the mountain ridges (especially when the leaves are down), you'll notice several awesome rock formations. Over the years, these have all became fantastic hiking destinations for locals and visitors alike! All of the suggested starting points for each hike are within a 3.5 Mile radius of Williamson, making the city a great "hub".
Points you shouldn't miss include:
-North Wall Rock
Please be aware of your surroundings at ANY of these locations as you visit them. Situational awareness is very important when hiking in West Virginia and eastern Kentucky. All of the hikes do include places that may not be suitable for small children or adult supervision would be recommended. Take in the scenes and enjoy the beauty of Coal Country but most importantly, be safe!
