Seneca Rocks Hike Route Map

Seneca Rocks, WV

A quick power-walk up one of West Virginia's most famous landmarks. My bro' and I reckoned we could make the 900', 2.6 mile round-trip while the others had lunch. Turns out it was one of the most rewarding hikes of our summer vacation. Vertigo in the mountains is not usually something I suffer from; atop Seneca Rocks however...
