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

Stopped for a picnic along the Greenbrier River Trail near Cass. Easy access. Wish we had bikes with us. We had a peaceful lunch along the banks and watched an ospry fly overhead. Later a man with his son walked past and they were fishing. The man caught a small fish! Just a great lazy day.

Great rail trail with crushed limestone. It is so beautiful. Wildflowers, deer, turkey, herons, and even a skunk. Didn't see a bear though which we were hoping for. The river is beautiful and the ride was pretty easy. Slight grade going south to north. Very quiet and hard to leave! Bring extra water as the access to water isn't that... More

This is a rail to trail....gravel...not paved....not concrete. Thus no skyscrapers, no noise, no motors, not many people. I walk it. I ride it. No better place I have ever visited to restore your soul and spirit. The spring wildflowers and fawns, the summer birdsong and greenery, the fall colors and bear and winter brings the blanket of complete quiet... More

Beautiful scenery and a well maintained trail. There is scant cell coverage and very limited support (NO food and beverages other than water fountain/pump water on the trail) The small towns apparently don't understand WiFi.

Beautiful scenery! Easy ride. Very level. Rented bikes because our road bikes don't work well on crushed gravel. Shuttle services available locally if you only want to ride one way.

Very nice rails trail. See very few people, even on July weekend. Bring your own food and water as drinking water along the trail is unavailable. Only a couple of towns along the entire length so plan accordingly. Trail very well maintained. Saw deer, coyote, many birds, and a few snakes. We stayed in Seebert which made for a good... More

Great level riding with many places to jump off the bike for a photo shot or to take swim in the Greenbriar River
