After doing Hoosier Hill and Campbell Hill, I drove down to WV to do Spruce Knob. Nice views.

Did it as a 20 mile round trip backpack. Very fun and great clear summit day. On the way back my friends and I miscalculated how much water we needed and it was a race back to Seneca creek before we got dehydrated.

Forgot to sign this one. Just a no effort walk from the car to the summit. Don't remember the exact date of the trip but I do remember there being a serious drought that year.

I stayed the night at Blackwater Falls St Pk and spent some time hiking around that area. Stopped at Seneca Rocks and climbed to the top(the highlight of this 3 state trip). Fall colors are quite spectacular in the West Virginia mountains on the drive to Spruce knob. Great views from the tower, but better views can be found if you hike the trail to the southwest.

Made it on the first day of deer season, and didn't get shot, so that's a success, right? Also visited the tiny church.

Drove down from Pittsburgh with Sarah for a trifecta highpoint weekend. We hit Mt Davis and Backbone Mountain on Oct 23rd with fellow SPer xDoogiex. Sarah and I then hit Spruce Knob the following morning. We timed the autumn color change perfectly. Sadly, it was foggy on the 23rd and our visibility was pretty limited. Happily, we woke up the next morning to clear skies and were able to enjoy beautiful views on Spruce Knob.

It was foggy at the top, but it was fun to get to. Seneca Rock was very beautiful. We will return here.

The summit was crowded, but it did afford some nice views. West Virginia surprised us. It was a lot more interesting and pretty than we ever expected. Nice!

Views were amazing for late June! From the tower there isn't much to see but the short trail around the summit was very enjoyable.

Date Climbed: Dec 1, 2008


Third highpoint in one day along with PN and MD. About 12-18 inches of snow on the peak along with high winds and 23 degrees temps made the drive up and the sprint to the tower a little challenging but It was a beautiful winter wonderland.

Not much of a challenge when you pretty much drive right up to the top. A very nice view though with a decent tower. My daughter loved the boulder area slightly below the summit.
