Spruce Knob is the highest point in West Virginia at 4863 feet above sea level and is easily accessible by car. It is a 13.5 mile trip on Forest Road 112, a narrow and winding road. From the parking lot at the summit, follow the short trail to the observation tower. Climbing the observation tower, you can have great views of the surrounding mountains and valleys - particularly scenic during fall foliage. The Whispering Spruce Trail goes around the summit and back to the parking lot, an easy half mile hike. There are a few breaks in the canopy with great views. There are also picnic areas here and the trailheads for more much longer trails.

The hike up to Seneca Rocks is only 1.5 miles, but fairly strenuous due to the elevation gain. However, there are benches and other spots to stop and rest along the trail. Once at the top, you will be rewarded with great views of the surrounding mountains and valley, particularly during the fall when the leaves are changing.
