Yes. But I recommend you go in the fall to see the beautiful foliage. It’s really something to see.

Can you privately describe directions to get to the trail head?

No it’s been years since I’ve been there.

If Massey Energy have their way there won’t be a Blair Mountain for much longer. They want to blast and strip mine it away.
