The drive to Spurce Knob was very scenic, I did this two years ago with my best friend from Boston. On our 1,400-mile trip we nabbed 7 state highpoints.

On your way to the summit, you will pass Seneca Rocks, it's a top outdoor rock climbing place in West Virginia, be sure to slow down and check it out.

The Mazda6 did a great job getting us up :)

An observation tower on the top of the summit to give you 360 panoramic view to the surronding mountains.

There is a 0.5 mile round-loop starting at the observation tower to view the spruce, I would recommend taking this trail.

Spruce Knob is a very fun drive-up highpoint. You will enjoy the amazing summit and the scenic drive in West Virginia, I would recommend going with your family :)

Thanks,
