    This weekend I went hiking up around Spruce Knob, WV (Highest point in the state) in the Seneca Creek Backcountry. I was looking for an old plane crash. About 15 Miles total.

    Most of the trail was an old logging railroad grade.

    Was there around peak fall color time.

    In 1973, a 1967 PA-23 Piper Apache plane crashed. Killing 2 people on board. Located about 100 yds off of Lumberjack Trail.

    Not sure, they are showing up for me. They are hosted and shared on Google photos if that is blocked for you.
    Unless other people can't see them too.
