Description

The North side of Seneca that faces away from route 33. Gets Sun until at least noon, however this face is slightly more shaded than the east face of the south peak due to the tree cover in the summer months.

Getting There
Hike up the east face trail from Roy Gap Road (standard approach). Or you can hike up the trail to the visitor's overlook and come down the back side of Seneca.

Getting There

The East face trail from Roy Gap road may be the longest approach at Seneca, but it's well worth the walk.
