Steam trains scale an old logging route to reach the mile-high summit at Cass Scenic Railroad State Park in Cass, West Virginia

As noteworthy for the century-old former mill town at its base as for the steep incline and double switchback it takes, this mountainside steam train journeys to Bald Knob summit along the same line used by loggers a century ago. The near-mile-high mountain top affords glorious, sweeping views of the surrounding Monongahela National Forest.
