West Virginia's Highest Point

4,863 feet high..there is a nice lookout tower there that you can climb up and get a great view.

The Spruce Knob–Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area sits at the headwaters of the Potomac River, where water first starts to flow from West Virginia to the Chesapeake Bay. Encompassing 100,000 acres, the scenic National Recreation Area (NRA) contains the highest peak in West Virginia, some of the best rock climbing on the east coast, outstanding views and a chance to enjoy a premier site in the Bay watershed.
