You probably know that Spruce Knob is West Virginia’s highest point. But did you know there’s more than one way to get to this top-of-the-West-Virginia-world peak? You can drive to the top, and take a short loop trail, Whispering Pines Trail, to the observation tower. Or, if you prefer to work a little for your views, and if you see the journey as part of the thrill, you can opt to hike up into the West Virginia clouds through a lush spruce forest via the almost six-mile Huckleberry Trail (11.5 miles round trip).

The best place to check for clear directions from experienced hikers who are overwhelmingly positive about this hike is AllTrails.
