Pikeville Kentucky

See what makes The Kentucky Wildlands so special as you zipline over the mountainside, kayak down the Big Sandy, whitewater the Russell Fork, gallop along forested paths, or trek the Cut-Through Overlook, all within a stone’s throw of the Kentucky Trail Town of Pikeville. 

Elevate your outdoor adventure with the “Zip, Paddle, Saddle” excursion, combining ziplining, rafting and horseback riding in one exciting experience. The Pikeville Cut-Through overlook offers amazing photo-ops, and a short drive to Breaks Interstate Park rewards you with a breathtaking view of the deep gorge, known as the Grand Canyon of the South. Take the legendary Hatfield & McCoy Feud Historic Driving Tour, featuring the historic site of the world’s most famous feud. Then take time to explore the Stone Heritage Museum to learn about the little-known coal mining business owned by legendary American industrialist Henry Ford. End in historic downtown Pikeville with its one-of-a-kind shops and eclectic dining options, such as local farm-to-table favorite, the Blue Raven. Finish up your day with a handcrafted beverage from Dueling Barrels Brewery and Distillery or catch a headliner show at the Appalachian Wireless Arena.
