Trail Restoration at Seneca Rocks

NFF Grant Partners and Projects


Thanks to support from REI, the National Forest Foundation supported critical trailwork within the Spruce Knob – Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area on the Monongahela National Forest. This scenic area of West Virginia offers visitors the chance to enjoy breathtaking vistas and world-class recreation opportunities.

In late July, volunteers joined with crews from the American Conservation Experience and the Student Conservation Association for a day of trail maintenance and celebration. The work of the crews and volunteers will ensure these popular trails provide sustainable access to the forest for generations to come.
