Spruce Knob, at 4,863 feet (1,482 m), is the highest point in the state of West Virginia and the summit of Spruce Mountain, the tallest mountain in the Alleghenies. The summit of Spruce Knob has a definite alpine feel, much more so than most other mountains of the Southern Appalachians. The upper few hundred feet of the mountain are covered in a dense spruce forest, a relic boreal forest environment similar to forests found in northern New England and Canada.
