Discover the most stunning views in the Mountain State— vast landscapes of rolling hills, dipping valleys and awe-inspiring beauty.

DRIVE: You don’t even have to get out of your car to start exploring. Take a drive on our most scenic country roads, or follow our Appalachian heritage through the most pristine farmlands on a rural quilt trail.

TREK: Get out and explore the wilderness a while. A geocaching trip or forest hike can uncover unique wildflowers, other rare and unusual plantlifehidden waterfallsold-fashioned covered bridges, near-forgotten gems and even abandoned towns.

Where to begin? The state’s most massive and secluded wilderness, Monongahela National Forest, is made up of several distinct ecosystems, like the plateaus of Dolly Sods or bogs of Cranberry Glades. Or, explore the National Parks.

RELAX: Sit back enjoy the calm of the view. Take in the rolling vistas at these restaurants with a view, or take a calming aerial tram ride above the forest and into the river gorge.

And then, there’s always the view of the East Coast’s clearest, darkest starry skies
