Allegheny-Big Run Trailhead - Seneca Creek Backcountry - Monongahela National Forest - Circleville, West Virginia

There are two trails that depart from this trailhead.They are as follows:

Allegheny Mountain Trail
The 12 Mile trail follows the ridge of Allegheny Mountain through hardwood forests and several small clearings. Beautiful views of the Seneca Creek drainage can be seen when the leaves are off the trees. Portions of this trail are occasionally used by authorized vehicles to access wildlife management plots and the gas pipeline crossing the northern end of the trail. For this reason, the trail is very wide for most of its length.
