Canoe the Cumberland River, hike the Daniel Boone National Forest, climb the rugged paths in your favorite off-road vehicle, explore a state resort park, savor authentic mountain cooking and more in the scenic Appalachian town of Williamsburg.
Nestled between the Cumberland River and the Daniel Boone National Forest, picturesque Williamsburg offers easy access to more than 600 miles of connecting hiking trails through dense natural forested areas, as well as half-day, full-day, and overnight canoeing and rafting expeditions down the Cumberland River. Magnificent natural arches, steep imposing canyons and ridges, and an abundance of outdoor recreation activities lure many to the Williamsburg area each year.
Take advantage of nearby Cumberland Falls State Resort Park (featuring the second-largest waterfall east of the Rockies) and Levi Jackson Wilderness Road Park for additional hiking, camping, fishing, boating, horseback riding and golf. Sample freshly prepared Appalachian and homegrown favorites at Riverside Produce and homemade ice cream at Milly’s on Main. Plan a visit to the world-renowned annual Gateway to the Cumberlands Jeep Jamboree where you can put your own all-terrain vehicle to the ultimate test.
