Seneca Skyway

Explore the wonders of the Potomac Highlands on this roadtrip. Here you’ll be met with breathtaking views and rich history at every turn, as you take Route US 219 Lewisburg to US Route 60 Lewisburg.

Route Details

Seneca Skyway passes through 294.6 miles of the beautiful Potomac Highlands. Soak up breathtaking sights on this 5-hour and 21-minute round trip drive. This route is accessible for both cars and motorcycles.

Lewisburg

You’ll kickstart your adventure in Lewisburg, dubbed “America’s Coolest Small Town.” After grabbing breakfast and a cup of coffee at The Wild Bean, buckle up and head towards Thomas on US 219. Enjoy this scenic drive, with lush forest views as far as the eye can see.

Thomas

Once you make your way to Thomas, it’s time to make a pit stop and refuel. Pack a picnic of your favorite snacks or stop by the local favorite, Hellbender’s Burritos to enjoy while you breathe in the fresh air by the roaring waterfall at Blackwater Falls State Park and or enjoy the wide-open spaces of Canaan Valley Resort State Park

Dolly Sods Wilderness

Make sure to check another item off of your bucket list by stopping at the Monongahela National Forest to explore the Dolly Sods Wilderness. Home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, you may think you’ve stepped into the Canadian Tundra rather than the Allegheny Mountains.

Seneca Rocks and Spruce Knob

Head south on Route 32 from Harman toward Onego for a short drive to Seneca Rocks and Spruce Knob – the highest elevation point in Almost Heaven. Take a short walk to the Spruce Knobb Observation Tower for a glimpse of West Virginia’s breathtaking mountain scenery. The views, however, won’t stop there! 

White Sulphur Springs

The winding backroads of Route 92 South will lead you back to Greenbrier County to the town of White Sulphur Springs, a close neighbor of Lewisburg. If you haven’t already, park and spend the night at The Greenbrier, “America’s Resort.” Whether you are hoping Lady Luck is on your side at The Greenbrier Casino Club or planning to tour the infamous Greenbrier Bunker, you can unwind from a long day’s voyage.
