Note: The road up to Wildcat Mountain is a gravel county road that under some conditions (lots of rain or snow) may not be passable by low clearance vehicles. Call the London Ranger Station at 606-864-4163 for information about road conditions.

Please use caution on this narrow road. You may need to pull over to the side to accommodate a vehicle coming from the opposite direction. There are several curves that are hard to see around, and a steep section towards the end.
