Located in the Spruce Knob-Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area of the Monongahela National Forest—a hotspot for mountain biking and rock climbing—the Lumberjack Trail offers a scenic hike on an old railroad grade. The heavily-forested trail follows the north slope of Spruce Knob, offering stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
History buffs will appreciate the occasional railroad ties and bridge footings still remaining from the days of the railroad.
