A trip to Spruce Knob demonstrates WV's natural beauty and wonder. On a clear day you can see for miles. Be aware of the weather as it can be dramatically different on the Seneca Rock side of the mountain. There are two ways to get to Spruce Knob - one way is generally on a gravel road and goes through Whitmer and Gandy Creek Camping area; the other way is an asphalt road off route 33/28 near Riverton. We went up on the gravel road and down on the paved road. The man made Spruce Knob Lake is very pretty - especially this time of year when the leaves are changing. The leaves probably change 2 weeks earlier on Spruce Knob as it is 4,800 feet. Spruce Knob is worth a Sunday drive for spectacular views of the WV mountains.
