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

For a holiday weekend, this trail is not heavily populated. Maybe because it is in a rural area. Most of the trail is gravel except for 5 miles in/out of Marlinton which is asphalt. Nice views of the river and shady in spots which helps if it is hot outside.

A rails-to-trails path, it was well worth waiting until the rain stopped. We rode north towards the train tunnel from Marlinton and the path was fairly flat with a slight incline. Although it had rained "cats and dogs" earlier in the day, the path was mostly dry with some puddles. It was a given that we would have mud streaks... More

Love this trail! Scenery is beautiful, the river is lovely, and the tunnels are fun. I'd recommend bringing a flashlight if you're going to go through them because they are pretty dark inside. The trail is very rural and hugs the riverbank for almost the entire distance. Marlinton is the largest town on the trail, and the Old Clark Inn... More

A delicious ride, walk, or run along the Greenbrier River for 75 miles. Some camping is available along the trail, food is not available without a walk off the trail. Very easy grade north bound, but very well maintained.
