Potomac Highlands

Encompassing the Allegheny Mountains and the Monongahela National Forest in eastern West Virginia, the Potomac Highlands region is nature’s outdoor playground. Steep, forested hills and clear mountain streams provide ample opportunity for hiking, biking and fishing. Winding roads and scenic railways offer enticing trips to view brilliant fall colors, while winter’s snow brings out the skis and snowboards.
