Destination West Virginia: Seneca Rocks


​Deep in the heart of the Monongahela National Forest lies Seneca Rocks, which offers the perfect place to unplug, breathe in the mountain air, and enjoy stunning views.

The climber’s paradise that lies in Pendleton County has much to offer than initially meets the eye. Jeremiah Hyslop, the Director of the Seneca Rocks Discovery Center, explains that while the hiking and rock climbing is usually the main attraction of the area, it also offers recreational areas for camping as well as a gateway to the history of Seneca Rocks.

“We have the, of course, Seneca Rocks which is a big attraction. There’s a trail that goes up to a platform up there with a beautiful vantage point of the area,” Hylsop explained. “Then, of course, there’s the Seneca Rocks Discovery Center and there’s a lot of exhibits in there to check out. Then there is the Sites Historic Homestead which is a late 1800’s homestead.”
