Lumberjack Trail Description

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.

Parking and Trail Access

To access the Lumberjack Trail’s southern trailhead, take Forest Road 112 approximately 4.5 miles east from Spruce Knob Lake. Parking is available along the road.

Lumberjack Trail Reviews

Not scenic in a landscape sense, but a steady, flat walk for at least 3 miles in. Occasionally muddy and rocky; you do see bits of "lumberjack history" along the trail.

This is four miles of slippery rock damp hiking..shared the trail with several horses..not a fun hike.
