Climb West Virginia’s Driest Mountain For One Of The Best Views In The State

The best things in life are free. At least in this case, they are, since all it costs is a little sweat and some steep mountainside scrambling to climb to the top of North Fork Mountain and see some of the best views in the nation.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Have you been up North Fork Mountain? How did you access the trail? We’d love it if you shared a photo from the summit in the comments!

If you do access North Fork from the Smoke Hole side, be sure to check out Smoke Hole Caverns, as well. In a single day trip, you can go from the top of the world to the bowels of the earth. What a neat experience!
