Absolutely gorgeous. Great trail to the top of the rocks. Very easy, even for not so in shape people, like myself.

Seneca Rocks is a really beautiful park in WV. I went on a a perfect fall day with another friend. We did Seneca Rocks on one day, then Via Ferrata the next day. We wanted to explore the climbing areas so we went up the back road (not the main path), and eventually found ourselves at the top of the rocks. The path we took was a really challenging rock scramble, but so much fun. Its pretty steep. There are areas where the rocks have been piled to give decent footing. The good news is that the hard path up does not have a lot of people on it - we did not run into anyone else on the way up. The view from the top is gorgeous. My pictures dont do this place justice. It was pretty crowded, but folks did well to keep to one side for social distancing purposes. After doing to some more exploring around the top section, we ended up taking the easy path down. Cant wait to go back for some climbing. I saw some folks with drones, and that would be the best way to go for epic photos that capture the size and scale of this place.

Beautiful. The hike is about 1.5 miles and difficult but well worth the effort. It's steep so both up and down can be tuffffff on the legs.

Seneca rocks offer an outstanding sight and great place to enjoy a decently challenging hike. About a mile and a half from the Discovery Center with the last mile climbing about 900 feet in elevation. The trail is very well maintained and the elevation really isn’t overbearing. Being able to climb on the rock face at the top offers an amazing view and well worth the hike to the top! Highly recommended if you are in the area!
