Potomac Highlands Loop: Seneca Rocks and Smoke Hole Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"A 72-mile loop in the magnificent Potomac Highlands along mountain streams, past towering Seneca Rocks and through unspoiled Smoke Hole Canyon. The Potomac Highlands includes the headwaters of the two south branches of the Potomac River adjacent to the imposing Allegheny Front through some of West Virginia’s most magnificent scenery. This 72-mile loop heads south along the North Fork past Seneca Rocks, one of West Virginia’s best-known landmarks.

It then climbs over North Fork Mountain to go north along the South Branch through narrow Smoke Hole Canyon to complete the loop. Along the way are mountain vistas, imposing rock formations, and good fishing, camping, and hiking. Special Attractions: Seneca Rocks, the Allegheny Front, tourist caves, and Smoke Hole Canyon. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
