Potomac Highlands
Encompassing the Allegheny Mountains and the Monongahela National Forest in eastern West Virginia, the Potomac Highlands region is nature's 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 snows bring out the skis and snowshoes. Charming mountain towns house art galleries, coffee shops, breweries and restaurants, and venues along the Mountain Music Trail showcase the music and dance of Appalachia. Whether you're looking for excitement or relaxation, it's the perfect vacation getaway!
