National Recreation Area

Spruce Knob-Seneca Rocks NRA is 100,000-acre area in Monongahela National Forest in Grant and Pendleton counties in West Virginia. The NRA was established in 1965 as the first NRA in a National Forest.

Seneca Rocks

Seneca Rocks is a 900-foot high crag on the west side of North Fork Mountain. The rocks are visible from WV-28 and US-33 and are a popular scenic attraction. The Seneca Rocks trail leads from a parking lot on WV-28 and runs about a mile and a half up to the rocks. Although the trail is fairly short, it gains 1000 vertical feet in 1.5 miles and can be strenuous due to elevation gain. At the top, there is a scenic overlook and visitors can climb on the rocks for fantastic views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
