I remember along the river and almost getting stuck in sand gravel mix..
I do remember an indoor pool along the road...But didn't get in it ..
Oh hell if we can make it will know then
Nice location, I didn't think much of the brown water that came out of the faucets.
I have now just scheduled more riding days than work days in 2013.....oh, wait,,,,,I'm unemploy(ed)-able.
Does that mean we're not going to steal... I mean watch your stuff while you're off working?

Three trips are scheduled daily: 10 AM, 1 PM and 4 PM.
The ride takes 1½ hours to complete, including two rest stops for the horses on the way up
and a stop on top for the riders to scramble on the rocks or
walk out onto the U.S. Forest Service's viewing platform.
The cost to ride is $35 per person.
The reservation may be canceled within 48 hours at no charge.
If rain occurs before the ride is scheduled to begin,
riders have a choice of going on the ride or rescheduling.

38 miles south of Seneca Rocks.
BYOB III was there in 2005.
What'd he say?
In for the rocks!
Good work George! I just have to post this shot of 'goonie from Linzi's thread there.
Your research/groundwork and postings are real service to these threads. I'm sure I speak for many in thanking you.
We're not worthy.........................
Seeing the Hack line ..
Reminds me of our days of being Wranglers at a Dude ranch in Milford...
Did that for 2 years... We rode to work, worked from 6am - 6 pm for $ 4.50 an hour...LOL and we used our own horses all day :huh
I knew the names of ALL 80 head of horses at the Malibu Ranch...
HB Was the lead.. It rode Drag But I had to run up and down the line keeping an eye on everyone..
Drag was really the harder of the 2 .... I had to talk to every horse up and down the line.. Not the people .
And some time I got to take out a hourly ride where it was just 2 people and I could take them on a 2 hour ride ..
As it should be.
It appears that Yokum's Campground (teepees, cabins, tenting) is located at #1.
Seneca Shadows Campground is located at #2.
I have been to Seneca Rocks but not to Yokum's.
It appears that Yokum's has rooms above the store located at the corner (3 in blue) next to
Harper's Old Country Store. Seneca Shadow Campground may have a back entrance foot path from the intersection.
Yokum's Motel, indoor pool and restaurant are up the road one mile north of Seneca Rocks.
See later post.

The intersection of Rt 28/Rt 33/Rt 55 is familiar to me.
But where is the
Princess Snowbird Campground ?
A search on the phone number 304-567-2351 makes me conclude that it is
another name for Yokum's.
Quote at bottom of the page:
Come visit our Princess Snowbird Campground nestled along the Seneca
Creek. Stay in a Tipi in our Indian Village. Facing the magestic view of the
Seneca Rocks, the legend tells us that Princess Snowbird climbed to the
top and the brave who followed her there became the chief of her tribe.
Enjoy history along with a modern pavilion, charcoal grills for cooking and an
open pit for campfires. Rustic camping as the Indians once enjoyed in our
area. We can handle families or large groups.
