Seneca Creek Trail to Spruce Knob Summit - Spruce Knob–Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Sure, you could drive to within 900 feet of the highest point in West Virginia. But creek-to- peak is the only honorable way to summit Spruce Knob, and the Seneca Creek to Huckleberry Trail is your ticket.
Parallel Seneca Creek—this backcountry trail is on the beaten path, and for good reason—and then hike a steep section of trail through a dense forest to the Huckleberry Trail, which takes you along the ridge all the way to Spruce Knob, West Virginia’s highest point at 4,863 feet. This 11.3-mile trail plus a shuttle might take all day, which allows you to end it by watching the sunset from Spruce Knob. Alternately, you can do it as an overnighter and enjoy pitching your tent in the high meadow backcountry sites, where you can fall asleep under the stars."
