Seneca Rocks is perhaps the most well known of all natural landmarks in the Mountain State.  As a result this hike, which climbs to an observation deck next to the rocks, is a very popular one for hikers of all levels of experience.  It provides a good workout, climbing at a 10% grade all the way to the outlook – but it is short and the view is worth the effort.

This hike is most like Mary’s Rock in Shenandoah National Park and Humpback Rocks on the Blue Ridge Parkway: a popular trail featuring a short, sometimes steep climb to a spectacular vista.
