Perched cozily at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Seneca is a pretty little town and forms an excellent base for hiking in the region.
Many of those who pass through here do so with the intention of embarking on hiking adventures. As such, trekking through the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and enjoying the wilderness ranks high in terms of the best things to do in Seneca. The Chestnut Ridge Trail, and the Apple Orchard Falls Trailhead are among the best in the area.
The spring and fall months are the best time to visit. At this point, it's not too hot for hiking but temperatures are still warm and pleasant in the high seventies.
