  • The drive to Spruce Knob seems long and is winding up and down on the narrow road, but we’ll worth the drive and short walk to the observation tower.

  • Words aren’t good enough. If you seen Ireland on tv it’s like that if you make a half mile moderate hike down from the tower, I usually put humor in my reviews but this is just a piece of heaven I do high points in different states and this is nice because you get a view and it’s not just a crowd of people who drove there and the Ike from the lot is easy although I do tackle big hikes.
  • It says the highest point in WV. The trail on the top has not much to see. The view from the tower is blocked by trees. The place also has lots of huge black flies. The toilet has no water. But still it's a unique experience to walk on it. The temperature is about 18 degree cooler on top than below. That's nice on hot summer days. The road is narrow and be careful about upcoming cars.
