Easy walk around the lake, but we saw a lot of wildlife, from red tail fox squirrels to chipmunks and deer. Its very pretty!

Easy loop with some beautiful views of the lake and valley. Being a fishing pole, this seems to be a favorite spot among the locals.

My friend and I drove to this trail from Elkins, WV and had to drive about an hour on a gravel road to the trail head (which was closed) so we weren’t able to hike this trail. Hikers —- Make sure you have good tires and a 4WD vehicle to make it to this trailhead.

My dad took me fishing here a lot as a child, and even as an adult it's still one of my favorite places to visit. I love the nature and the view. This place is beautiful all year round.

I took my kayak to Spruce Knob Lake a few weeks ago. This is a great place for beginners to practice their paddling/maneuvering skills. The day I went, it was a little chilly with some light rain. The water was calm, but there were still plenty of individuals fishing and kayaking. There's an easy area where you can load/unload your kayak as well as easily guide your kayak to and from the loading area.
