Are there any mountainous/hilly towns in Kentucky? What are the elevations?
Looking for land, love the mountains but I don't like the west(too brown).

The elevations range roughly between 1,000ft in the lowest valleys to about 4,000ft for the highest ridges in far southeastern KY. Although the mountains are not huge, the land is very rugged with deep valleys, thick forests and steep terrain.

Here are some suggestions for mountain-y Kentucky towns:

Morehead
Middlesboro
Hazard
Grayson
Paintsville
West Liberty
Ashland
Louisa
Pikeville

Each of the towns listed has it's own unique features.. all depends on what you're looking for! Hope any of these suggestions help!

If I were you I would look into ..
Pikeville. I love it and its got some great features.
Ashland. Its more industrial, but its ok.
Prestonsburg. Its close to Pikeville and so you can get about all you want between them both.
Or South Willaimson, Ky. On the West Virginia line, but its cool..
