Inscription
Spruce Knob (9 miles west), 4,860 feet and the highest point in West Virginia, lies slightly above the crest ridge of Spruce Mountain. The crest lies above 4,500 feet for more than 10 miles and is strewn with fragments of Pottsville Sandstone of the Pennsylvania Age. Nearby are Spruce Lake and the Sinks, where the Gandy Creek disappears for about a mile into a cavern beneath a spur of the Alleghenies.
