West Virginia map This elevation map of West Virginia illustrates the number of feet or meters the state rises above sea level. The landscape of West Virginia is quite rugged, as the Appalachian Mountain system passes from north to south through the state. The lower areas of West Virginia are found along the rivers and streams that wind their courses through the valleys of the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountain Ranges. The lowest point in the state is at the Potomac River in Jefferson County; 240 feet above sea level.

The highest point in the state is Spruce Knob in Pendleton County. Located in the southeastern part of the state, within the Spruce Knob National Recreation Area, within the Monongahela National Forest, and about 130 miles west of Charleston, Spruce Knob rises 4,863 feet above sea level. It's the tallest mountain in the Allegheny Mountains.
