This trail was a beautiful ride for miles that brought up through Marlington. We traveled from Watoga State Park to Marlington which was only around 10 miles. With many places to stop and enjoy the environment and fresh water to enjoy.

Not many amenities on the trail or many people but the ride is amazing and enjoyable! Ride North to south and bring a little snack so you don't Bonk but don't forget to stop and enjoy the ride.

With 77 miles of trail, beautiful scenery along the Greenbrier River, good access at many points, and excellent maintenance, this trail is hard to beat for hiking and biking.

Nature is beauty here. Location is good and there is a lot of parking. Is an easy walk. Good for horses or bikes. Good view of Knapps Creek from the old train bridge.

This was a trainbed not too long ago. Today it is a very well maintained bike and walking trail that runs from Cass Scenic Railroad to Caldwell, between Lewisburg, WV and White Sulphur Springs, WV. The grade is very gentle and easy to walk or ride. It hangs along the bank of the Greenbrier River the entire length. There are... More

I've done a lot of rail trails and I thought the Greenbrier was gorgeous! Probably because of all the river views, unspoiled forest and bridges. We were staying at mile marker 45.5 and biked both ways. I plan to come back in the spring for a longer trip!

My son and I rode all 77 miles of this trail in August 2014 and loved it! We stayed at Watoga State Park in a cabin--amazing place! I still think about falling asleep to that crackling fire in the fireplace. The trail is beautiful and well-maintained with an excellent map and trail markers. There are places to rest, camping, and... More

We rode the greenbriar trail from Caldwell to Marlinton, then the next day north another 12+ miles and back to Marlinton. Then back to caldwell the last day. In Marlinton we stayed at the locust hill b&b. The rooms were great and they serve dinner in their pub so we didnt have to worry about finding a place to eat... More

Well maintained and beautifully scenic. Easy to commune with nature. Be prepared for a couple of 20-mile plus days. But riding is easy

We rode about 20 miles of this trail, and we LOVE rails to trails areas because you are off of the main roads. The trail runs by the Greenbriar River for much of the distance, which is nice. There was not as much access to the river on the parts that we rode--we would have liked to have been able... More
