Greenbrier River Trail

First RTT Adventure

June, 2017 by chefboyrdp

My son and I rode this trail over 5 days in July 2001 from Caldwell to Cass. He was 9 at the time. We packed most everything on my bike and camped when we were tired, dished when we felt like it and took side trips along the way to Watoga SP and Marlonton. We ultimately rode over 1100 miles an made memories to last a lifetime. Great trail! We got to see deer, bear and one rattlesnake lying on the trail so please remember: this is truly wilderness. Plan accordingly.

one of my favorite rail trails

I have ridden this trail at least 10 times. It is beautiful and well maintained. It and the GAP in Pennsylvania are my favorites.

Greenbrier River Trail

Wonderful Trail

October, 2016 by steve plattner

I rode much of the trail round trip over Labor Day weekend. I rode from Marlinton to Cass and back, and Marlinton south about 32 miles and back the following day. The trail was in very good shape, with great campsites along the way--one of the most beautiful routes I have ridden. I stayed north of the extensive damage from the June floods which will take a lot of money and time to repair, but you can still experience the large majority of the trail. Highly recommended.

Greenbrier River Trail

Loved the Trail, hated the horse damage

October, 2016 by mahawor

I biked out and back on the north section from Marlington to Cass. The scenery was amazing. The trail surface was good for most of this section, there were some areas that were torn up pretty bad from horse use though. I'd have given this trail 5 stars if not for the horse damage.

Good Trail Despite Horses

October, 2016 by mahawor

I rode from Galax to Pulaski in early October 2016. The trail conditions were great for most of the route. The only exception being a couple areas that were moderately rough due to higher horse traffic. My bike is a Surly Disc Trucker with 47mm tires, though I think most would be fine with narrower. I'd like to thank the woman who gave me half a sandwich on the trail. I'd thought there was a place to get something to eat at Foster Falls, but it turned out to be closed on that Monday. Despite not giving this trail 5 stars, I still highly recommend it and would have given it 5 if not for the horse damage. I was aware that horses were allowed on the trail before I went and some of the negative comments I'd read about horses seemed too negative. However, after witnessing the damage they cause, I now believe they shouldn't be on the trail.

Dick & Willie Passage Rail Trail

A little challenging

October, 2016 by herry

The trail is all paved. Since it is leaf falling time it was a little hard to see the trail in some spots. Not a busy trail but we didn't realize that it was uphill for 3 miles. According to my phone exercise app it is 695 foot change in elevation. Very gentle and doable, though. We parked at the Virginia Ave trail head. We have an RV so we parked in the old Food Lion plaza just above the trail head parking. There was no signage for the parking area on the main roads for the parking area.

Breathtaking

September, 2016 by rev.kerrynichols

Started my New River Trail ride on August 29th at 7:00. The ride was awesome following along the New River absolutely beautful scenery along the trail. The trail surface is made up of rock dust, dirt, and some gravel however it was extremely smooth. I rode a Giant Road Bike stocked up on bananns, trailmix, and a number of 20 0z bottles of water. It was one of the most enjoyable trail rides I have ever riden. The trail crosses over the New River. The trail was was flat mostly just a stead spin of the peddles. This time on the ride was bragging right to say i rode the trail so proud after the ride going into one of the stores to buy a New River Trails Hat and a 57.7 mile sticker that I placed on my rear glass of my pickup. If you are looking for a great ride the New River Trail is one you should consider. Next time I will take my time and enjoy the beautiful scenery that God has given us to enjoy.

Huckleberry Trail

I'm Your Huckleberry

September, 2016 by gahanosh

This is a very nice trail. Well maintained, great views, good mix of terrain. Thanks Virginia.

New River Trail State Park

Fantastic trail to get away and spend time in nature.

September, 2016 by d.monty

Fine gravel trail suitable for MTBs or Gravel/Cyclocross bikes.
Beutiful scenery, with views of the New River, creeks, pastures, forest, cliffs, a few cabins, farms or homes.
Mostly wooded but some open sun light areas.
Two tunnels. Bring a light or ride slowly!
Nice long bridges high above the water.
Wildlife; deer, squirrels, birds, snakes, turles, etc.
The Ranger station at Foster Falls (near Interstate 77) has water and nice restrooms. There is little to no drinking water available anywhere else but there are some restrooms and sheltered benches along the trail.


I've been here four times and my most recent ride was awesome. I went on a Wednesday. I counted 12 people in 45 miles. I was able to maintain a 16 mph pace with the light traffic. The weather was perfect with some T-Storms brewing nearby. I had a tree fall over a section that I returned to 30 minutes later but I never felt any rain or wind. The scenery around the little town of Draper is stunning. One of my favorite long trails. Highly recommened!

Best section for New River Valley vistas

September, 2016 by tedmcgarry

I have read the previous two years' reviews and then used Google earth to select many sections of the NRT to bike this year. I have several observations. First, if you want the feel of a wide river valley with vistas of the mountains and not much development, in my opinion, the Fries to Byllesby Dam section is the best. Second, if you like trails with the long green tunnel feel, bike the Draper to Hiwassee, Austinville to Ivanhoe or Cliffview to Gambetta sections. Third, the trail sections either side of Ivanhoe where the horses predominate, has less to offer than other sections and highway access from anywhere to that trailhead via VA 94 is long. Finally, the Virginia Creeper Trail, even with crowds, is the Crown Jewel of all the Rails to Trails in Virginia.

Two Day Trip

August, 2016 by ssiesser

Just returned from a two day round trip bike ride on the NRT. Scenery was magnificent, most of the surface is in excellent shape, but you have to watch out for the horse poop and rocks and branches. Drove from Wash DC Sunday to Dublin, VA and began trip Monday morning from Dora's Junction. Encountered several maintenance crews and grass cutting crews on Monday, but none on Tuesday. Only saw a handful of trail users until about 5 miles from Galax. Stayed at the Doctor's Inn - highly recommend it. There are only one or two water fountains the entire trip, but there is a water pump at Foster Falls that I dunked my head under. It rained on the return to Pulaski from mile marker 9 to 5. Suggest you keep a towel in the car. I had to drive home in my socks
