The North Fork Mountain Trail is an excellent two- to three-day backpack, offering some of the most scenic vistas in the entire state. The major drawback to this trail is a lack of water along the crest. Encompassing more than 100,000 acres, the Spruce Knob-Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area contains two of the most popular outdoor attractions in West Virginia. Seneca Creek

Backcountry has the highest point in West Virginia, and Seneca Rocks has some of the best rock climbing on the east coast. The area of high ridges and steep cliffs was established in 1965 to protect the natural beauty of the region. North Fork Mountain forms the eastern boundary of the recreation area. Special attractions: The trail offers many tremendous views from the sandstone cliffs that line North Fork Mountain.

The first half of this trail is on semi-private land and consists of mostly off-road vehicle trails. You'll meet a lot of hunters there too. Some of the views are nice, but the second half has the better terrain and views. (2 stars for first half). Pretty easy hike.
