Seneca Rocks, located in Monongahela National Forest, is one of the best-known landmarks in West Virginia and have long been noted as a scenic attraction and are popular with rock climbers.  The rocks are a magnificent formation rising nearly 900 feet above the North Fork River. Eastern West Virginia contains many such formations of the white/gray Tuscarora quartzite. Seneca Rocks and nearby Champe Rocks are among the most imposing examples. A self-guided 1.3 mile interpretive trail beginning behind the Seneca Rocks Discovery Center offers the non-climber a way to reach the lofty heights of the rocks and view the scenic valley below.
