One of the Allegheny Mountains, Backbone Mountain, in Tucker County, extends northeastward from Parsons, WV, into western Maryland. It exceeds 3,000 feet in elevation along most of its length. A roadside park, "Centennial Park," along U.S. Route 219, affords beautiful views westward from the summit. The mountain has also been mapped as "North Ridge" and "The Devil's Backbone."
