The Monongahela National Forest was established in 1920. Located in the north central highlands of West Virginia, the Monongahela straddles the highest ridges in the State. Elevation ranges from just under 1000' to 4863' above sea level. Variations in terrain and precipitation have created one of the most ecologically diverse National Forests in the country.
This beautiful place holds breathtaking vistas, peaceful country roads, gently flowing streams, and glimpses of the many species of plants and animals that inhabit the Forest. You will also see a 'working' forest, which produces timber, water, grazing, minerals and recreational opportunities for the region and nation.
